Mitchell Museum of the American Indian Announces Fall Programming Lineup


Byline: Jennifer Howell

The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian announces an exciting lineup of fall programming with a major event each month including the exhibit opening of "Deconstructing Stereotypes: Top Ten Truths about Native Peoples" at the Evanston Civic Center, an Indigenous Peoples' Day celebration and concert, the Annual Dr. Carlos Montezuma Honorary Lecture and Awards, and the Native Fine Arts Holiday Market. Weekend Arts & Seasonal Stories and special Spotlight Tours will round out the calendar with captivating programming for the whole family.

Join the Mitchell Museum on Monday, September 19 at the Evanston Civic Center for the opening reception of its "Deconstructing Stereotypes: Top Ten Truths about Native Peoples" exhibit. The award winning exhibit examines the top misconceptions about Native peoples as identified by Native Americans from across the country. The event will also include a special award presentation to honor Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl for her generous support of the museum during her tenure as mayor. The event takes place from 6:00-8:00pm, and is free and open to the public.

The exhibit is presented in partnership with the City of Evanston, and with support from the Evanston Arts Council and the Evanston Community Foundation. It will be on display for one year on the second floor gallery of the Evanston Civic Center at 2100 Ridge Avenue. The exhibit will also be on display at the State of Illinois Building from September 26th-30th where it will be featured in the lobby of the James R. Thompson Center at 100 W. Randolph St. in Chicago. For the month of October, it will be on view at the Evanston Public Library at 1703 Orrington Ave.

On Monday, October 10, the Mitchell will join other cultural institutions, universities, and cities around the world to celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day. The day celebrates the contributions of indigenous people throughout the world, and acknowledges the many tribes who lived across America long before Christopher Columbus. The museum will be open and free to the public from 10am-5pm, with a panel discussion on historical and political aspects of Indigenous Peoples' Day from 1-2:30pm. The panel will include musician Scotti Clifford (Lakota) and Professor Patty Loew (Bad River Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe), among others. The day will culminate with a special concert featuring Native and Indigenous musicians.

The concert, sponsored by Northwestern University's Native American and Indigenous Peoples Steering Group and Goodcity Chicago, features Evanston's Mark Cleveland, folksingers the Sones de Mexico Ensemble, and Lakota alternative rock group Scatter Their Own. It will be held from 7:00-9:00pm at Northwestern's Pick-Staiger Concert Hall. Tickets are available at www.mitchellmuseum.org for $15 if purchased by 9/30, and $20 after.

On Wednesday, November 2, The Mitchell Museum will host the seventh annual Dr. Carlos Montezuma Honorary Lecture and Awards. Suzan Shown Harjo (Cheyenne/Hodulgee Creek), founding president of the Morning Star Institute, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and policy advocate who has dedicated her life to fighting for the rights of Native peoples, will be the keynote speaker, and receive the event's namesake award. Fr. Peter Powell, director of the St. Augustine's Center for American Indians for the past 55 years, will be honored with the Elizabeth Seabury Mitchell Award for service and philanthropy, and artist Rhonda Holy Bear (Cheyenne River Lakota) will receive the Woodrow "Woody" Crumbo Award for Native arts. …
