Oviatt Library’s Music and Media Department, 2nd Floor East Wing.
Please come to see the beauty of the Native culture, traditions and PowWows. Explore past and present territories and see how Hollywood depicted Native Americans through film.
What is shocking is that the average American has a little or no knowledge of Native American History. Reason being, the lack of information that is taught to children in schools. Also, many people create negative stereotypes from what they have learned in films that people pay to see. The purpose for this Exhibit is in hopes that people gain more knowledge and appreciation of the Native American history and of the community today. The American Indian Student Association have worked hard to prepare this for you!

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation’s earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity. We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library’s Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century.
For more information, and images from the exhibition please check out our In Protest: The Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social Action exhibition gallery page.
