2018 Native American Cultural Symposium: The Theme of the 2018 Symposium is “Reunification through Reinvention: The Creative Visions of Contemporary Native America.” The Symposium will bring together an array of Native Elders and Youth for a weekend of performances, presentations, and workshops.

By utilizing community and museum space, visitors and presenters alike will be invited into opportunities for understanding, respect, and increased awareness of cultural context by promoting Native art, performance, writing, fashion, cuisine, and film. MONAH will host a number of activities throughout the weekend. In partnership with Fulcrum Press, the Museum will be home to readings, storytellers, including renowned storyteller Gayle Ross, and meet-and-greets with the Symposium presenters and performers. The museum will host workshops covering topics from Lakota Bow Making, led by Joseph Marshall III, to a writer’s workshop. The Symposium will conclude at the Museum’s front lawn with a farm-to-table dining experience. This year, MONAH is joining hands with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
