Walking Beyond Ancestors' Footsteps Exhibit
GVSU's Traveling Exhibit
This exhibition invites visitors to step into the gaze of a few of the Native Americans who have lived, worked, and studied in the greater Grand Rapids area over the mid-20th and 21st centuries and features contemporary artwork by local Native American artists. The show contains historic documents and objects made by local Native Americans during the past several decades.
This exhibit is part of the work completed in conjunction with the “Gi-gikinomaage-min (We are all teachers): Defend Our History, Unlock Your Spirit” project, which is managed by the Kutsche Office of Local History at Grand Valley State University. That project has been supported in part by the Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
