Native Voices

Posted on: |

Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, is an interactive exhibition that examines concepts of health and medicine among contemporary American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawai’ians – the first exhibit to include a focus on the latter two populations.

The National Library of Medicine, in consultation with Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians, created the Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness exhibition. The fullsize exhibition premiered on October 5, 2011 at the main NLM building in Bethesda, Maryland, and it is currently on display there. The Native Voices website presents most of the exhibition content, and the exhibition’s many videos and interviews are also available via the free Native Voices app. (iPad users with an adequate Internet connection may download the app from the Apple iTunes store.)

We will be holding two programs as part of the exhibit tour:

  • Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016:   official opening of the exhibit, 4:00 pm, History of Medicine area, HSL (free and open to the public)
    • Amy Lyons, Interim Director of HSL – welcome and introduction
    • Jodi Maracle, Ph.D. student in the Department of Transnational Studies, will perform a traditional ceremony
    • Dr. Margaret Moss, Assistant Dean of Inclusion and Diversity, School of Nursing, will deliver remarks
  • Thursday, Mar. 3, 2016:  Friends of HSL program – Panel Discussion featuring Dr. Moss as moderator, and local Native Americans discussing their views – contact Linda Lohr 829-5737 for more information. Registration form is here.
