Join the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian, Swedish American Museum, Nordic House Chicago, and the Chicago Cultural Alliance for a panel discussion between Kurt Seaberg, representing the Sami or Scandinavian indigenous perspective, and Wayne Valliere (Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe) to share the perspective from North American Indigenous culture. Moderated by the Mitchell Museum’s Josee Starr (Arikara, Omaha, Odawa), the discussion will explore similarities and differences between the two panelists’ cultures, and reflect on their individual experiences followed by a Q&A with the audience.
The panel discussion will take place at the Nordic House Chicago. Attendees to this in-person program will also get to enjoy light refreshments as well as visit the Nordic House’s current exhibit, Sámi Dreams, a photography exhibit displaying portraits of Sámi people and their oral histories. The photographer, Randall Hyman, will be invited to participate in the panel as well and share his experience in capturing the photographs.
