Beaded Histories: Intergenerational Knowledge and Northern Plains Beadwork

Beaded Histories: Intergenerational Knowledge and Northern Plains Beadwork

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

7:00 p.m., Center for English as a Second Language 103, FREE

A presentation by Jessa Rae Growing Thunder (Fort Peck Dakoda/Nakoda). For generations, Indigenous women have encrypted their histories in their beadwork, every stitch serving as a form of knowledge transmission. Growing Thunder will discuss the intergenerational knowledge base preserved in these "beaded histories" from her perspective as a traditional quill and beadwork artist.  A reception and a special exhibit of beadwork follow the program.


This is a presentation in the Arnold and Doris Roland Distinguished Speaker Series, made possible by the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Roland. Reception underwritten by the Friends of the ASM Collections. 

The Center for English as a Second Language (CESL) is one building east of ASM north at 1100 E. James E. Rogers Way.
