      "Indigenous Roots/Routes: Contested Histories, Contemporary Experiences" Special Collections Exhibition

      “Indigenous Roots/Routes: Contested Histories, Contemporary Experiences” reflects on the past five centuries of colonization and cultural exchange among Indigenous Peoples, Europeans, Africans and Americans. The exhibition explores the processes of social, religious and political adaptation, what it means to be rooted in or unrooted from one’s land, and how searching out unfamiliar routes forces others to travel new ones. It draws upon art, textural works and rare books from three major collections at Penn State: the Eberly Family Special Collections Library, the Matson Museum of Anthropology and the Palmer Museum of Art. Together the materials encourage us to question how history is written and how it informs contemporary works by Indigenous artists and activists. The exhibition is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, except for special holiday hours. The gallery is closed on Saturdays. Monthly hours of operation can be found at: https://libraries.psu.edu/monthly-hours?library=187
