Native American History in Evanston: Collecting and Assessing a Complex Past

The Evanston History Center continues its “Year of Dawes” programming, with “Native American History and Evanston: Collecting and Assessing a Complex Past,” a presentation by Alyssa M. Padilla. The event takes place on Thursday, April 7, 2016, 7pm, at the Evanston History Center. A reception catered by Whole Foods Market kicks off the event at 6:30 PM.

Join us as NAGPRA researcher Alyssa M. Padilla explores and explains how the Evanston History Center is currently working to comply with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), a Federal law passed in 1990. NAGPRA provides a process for museums to repatriate certain Native American cultural items. Padilla will discuss the process and also talk about some items in the EHC collections related to local Native American history.
