MIAC | April 2024

I’m excited to share our new short video about the educational programming at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture featuring Director of Education Marita Hinds (Tesuque Pueblo). Click this link [https://vimeo.com/927249127] to watch and feel free to share with your network!

In other updates, MIAC donors were recently invited to a VIP Collection Highlight hosted by Curator of Ethnology, Tony Chavarria. Our donors got an up-close look at some incredible pottery, baskets and drawings from the archive. It was a special opportunity extend by the museum as a thank-you to those who make financial contributions to support the museum.

Save the date! The next event in the Native Narratives series on Saturday, April 13 will be about Pueblo government sovereignty featuring Brian Vallo (Acoma Pueblo), Alvin Warren (Santa Clara Pueblo), and Regis Pecos (Cochiti Pueblo). These events have recently been selling-out. Click this link to register today.
