The Columbia River Plateau has the dubious distinction of being the sole North American culture region whose distinct Indigenous beadwork traditions are popularly identified as being products of outside influences. In this Museum After Hours presentation, Maryhill Museum of Art curator Steven L. Grafe will examine this phenomenon and illustrate the uniqueness of the three main styles of Plateau Native beadwork dating from 1860-1960.
Museum After Hours is free to attend! Talk begins at 5 pm.
