Native Truths: Re-Centering Who Tells the Story (SSD Keynote Panel) INT 100/201 APPROVED!

This year, the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship is collaborating with the Field Museum to host a panel of museum staff, scholars, and community members. Moderated by Levi Rickert, Editor-in-chief of Native News Online, the panel explores the process the Field Museum took in creating the Native Voices exhibit as an example of decolonizing and the importance of storytelling. Panelists will discuss how researchers collaborated with Native and Indigenous communities and incorporated research and artifacts collected from a western and colonial methodology to reimagine the process of museum curation.

Moderator: Levi Rickert (Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation). Founder, publisher, and editor of Native News Online.


  • Alaka Wali, Curator emerita of North American Anthropology in the Science and Education Division of the Field Museum
  • Karen Ann Hoffman, (Oneida Nation in WI), a Haudenosaunee-raised beadwork artist whose work appears in the exhibition.
  • Dr. Eli Suzukovich III (Little Shell Band of Chippewa-Cree), Research scientist in the Negaunee Integrative Research Center at the Field Museum, working within the North American Collections curation unit.
