A Promise Kept: The Inspiring Life and Works of Suzan Shown Harjo

September 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm UTC+0

Free

Influential policy advocate, writer, curator, and a 2014 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Suzan Shown Harjo (Cheyenne and Hodulgee Muscogee) will be recognized for a lifetime of achievement at a symposium co-hosted by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts. As an NMAI Founding Trustee, Harjo’s legacy of activism and artistic accomplishment has long inspired American Indian peoples and influenced U.S. policies about Native sovereignty and culture.

Free and open to the public, the symposium will be held in the museum’s Rasmuson Theater.

The event, which coincides with the museum’s anniversary, will be webcast and a book of essays by the participating scholars, writers and museum leaders will be published in 2020.
