As one of 104 grant recipients selected from across the country, the HSU Library is hosting the traveling exhibit, Native Voices: Native Peoples' Concepts of Health and Illness for a six-week loan this fall, September 23 through November 20.

Native Voices exhibit explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness, and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land, and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land, and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today. This exhibit is sponsored by the HSU Library, Department of Social Work, Student Health & Wellbeing Services, J.S. National Library of Medicine, and American Library Association.

Opening reception is scheduled for 2-3pm, Tuesday, October 15th in the Library Lobby.

Then join the NAS department for a short film and discussion on California Indian History, Wednesday, October 16 at 1pm in Library 317.
