What Remains: Listening to Indigenous Perspectives

November 4, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

USF Contemporary Art Museum is hosting an in-person forum in connection with the exhibit Native America: In Translation on view at the museum from August 25 through December 1, 2023. This exhibit assembles the wide-ranging work of nine Indigenous artists who pose challenging questions about identity and heritage, land rights, and histories of colonialism. This forum gathers the voices of an Indigenous artist, tribal cultural preservationist, and Native American civil rights and environmental advocates in conversation with an anthropology expert to explore the ways of restoring and expanding Indigenous cultural agency and honoring tribal heritage and ecological knowledge.

For questions or more information, please email [email protected] or call (813) 974-4133.

Panelists include: Reverend Houston Cypress, poet, artist, and founder of Love the Everglades environmental movement, from the Otter Clan of the Miccosukee Tribe Indians of Florida; Betty Osceola, a Native American Everglades educator, conservationist, clean water advocate, and member of the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida from the Panther clan; Dr. Thomas Pluckham, USF Professor of Anthropology; and, Robert Rosa, chairman of the Florida Indigenous Alliance and member of the central Florida division of the American Indian movement.

Funding for this exhibit and related programming is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the University of South Florida. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
