Upcoming Highlights

Indigenizing Museums and the Move Toward

Decolonization: Successes and Ongoing Challenges  (Amy Lonetree Lecture) 

 Thurs | Dec 11 | 3:00PM-4:30PM

Cross-Cultural Center Comunidad Room

Followed by a Reception


The relationship between Indigenous communities and mainstream museums has changed significantly in recent decades as a result of Indigenous activism and new museum theory and practice. These changes include the sharing of curatorial authority, collaborative partnerships, and efforts to decolonize museums.  My research examines the current state of contemporary exhibition practices at both national and tribal museums.  Central to my analysis is exploring how museums can serve as sites of decolonization through honoring Indigenous knowledge and worldview, and discussing the hard truths of colonization in exhibitions in an effort to promote healing and understanding.

Do you know the history of activism and the current issues facing students at the 10 University of California campuses? UC is one of the largest public institutions in the world- our struggles are struggles of global scale, that we face locally at each campus. UC President Janet Napolitano (former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security) has just proposed 5% fee hikes for the next 5 years. How do students at separate campuses organize locally, while struggling transnationally?

Please join us in the SPACES practicum- one of the only student-facilitated courses at UC San Diego.
