Dancing for Our Tribe: Potawatomi Tradition in the New Millennium
Join us for an Opening Reception and Book Signing on March 4, 2023 at 2 pm at the Skokie Heritage Museum. This event will kick off an ongoing series of programs, events and exhibits celebrating Indigenous Cultures and the Native Community.
This exhibition of images by photographer Sharon Hoogstraten (Citizen Potawatomi) records vivid portraits and accompanying personal statements of contemporary Potawatomis wearing traditional regalia from all nine Potawatomi nations. Her work highlights how this native community continues to breathe new life into traditional culture and handicrafts in today's world, celebrating their continued existence through centuries of loss and lighting the way forward for the next seven generations.
