Join the National Museum of the American Indian in New York for the opening of IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas, a collaboration between the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Smithsonian Institution Travelling Exhibition Service (SITES).

The opening will feature a discussion with curator Dr. Gabrielle Tayac (Piscataway) and Dr. Heriberto Dixon (Tutelo)

About the exhibit: African and Native peoples came together in the Americas. Over centuries, African Americans and Native Americans created shared histories, communities, families, and ways of life. Prejudice, laws, and twists of history have often divided them from others, yet African-Native American people were united in the struggle against slavery and dispossession, and then for self-determination and freedom. For African-Native Americans, their double heritage is truly indivisible.
