SCHAUMBURG, ILLINOIS— The long awaited traveling exhibit designed and curated by the National Library of Medicine “Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness” will be at the Trickster Art Gallery the only Native owned and operated art institution in Illinois on Sunday, January 25th, at 1 pm to 4 pm.
Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness, and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Visitors will discover how Native concepts of health and illness are closely tied to the concepts of community, spirit, and the land.
This extraordinary exhibition is currently on display in the rotunda gallery of the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.
Trickster Art Gallery continues to welcome all educators and general public to learn more about our culture from a first voice perspective to help create a better experience in the classroom and everyday life. Exposure to lesson planning, a Native way of life and health, while visiting you can also learn about the contributions of Native Veterans in the military, see a gallery of 1500 square feet of Native Veterans art, all in our “Wall of Honor” exhibit. Sharing exhibit space with the Native Voices is our “Walking through Native lands” exhibit designed for school tours, educators and the general public to learn and explore.
This exhibit will help to launch an all-inclusive (everyone welcome) 2015 Wellness workshops and talking circles program which will also support the gallery’s veterans program that will be ready to launch in March 2015 with a full schedule for the year.
