Millennia of Movement Exhibit

Millennia of Movement Exhibit

Nov 2nd 2021 - Dec 17th 202112 PM - 5 PM

The exhibit explores the idea of movement in and on cultural landscapes, using ancient and contemporary Native American examples from the Southeast. This through-line from the past to the present will highlight the dynamic and enduring Native connection to vast natural landscapes. It will engage visitors by answering broad questions such as what types of things move and moved on these landscapes (objects, ideas, people), how do/did they move on landscapes (water travel, roads/paths, oral communication), and why do/did they move in these ways (subsistence, power, religion, wealth, and most importantly, identity). It will highlight archaeologically identified examples of movement such as trade, exchange, and the movement of ideas through symbols we call iconography. It will also highlight contemporary Southeastern cultures, many displaced involuntarily during the Indian Removal period. Here, we will still focus on the persistence of identity and culture between tribes removed to Oklahoma and elsewhere, and those that remained in traditional regions. These include the Choctaw, Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Creek among others.
