'Beyond the Frame - To Be Native'

Seattle Public Library presents free symposium Nov. 16 & 17

Learn the story of Indigenous peoples, both past and present. At the turn of the 20th century, Edward S. Curtis began a decades-long mission to photograph Native peoples ... people he mistakenly thought were on the edge of extinction. But today, we know his work leads not to a lost past - it drives us to a thriving present. What does it mean to be native, beyond the frame?

During National American Indian Heritage Month, join scholars and historians as they examine Edward S. Curtis and Native American and First Nations cultures. This conference will take place Friday, Nov. 16 from 6:30pm to 8:30 pm and Saturday, Nov. 17 from 8:30am to 5pm at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., 206-386-4636.

Library programs are free and open to the public. Registration is recommended not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage at the regular rates. Please check back soon for the full schedule.

The Seattle Public Library will host a two-day symposium where we look at themes and concepts that deepen our understanding of 'Beyond the Frame - To Be Native' with a variety of scholars, historians, and students in lectures, panels, group discussions and performances.

This symposium examines the work of Edward Curtis, while recognizing the need to move beyond the frame of his work. We will explore the concepts of authenticity in art, tribal sovereignty, environmental activism and Indigenous ways of knowing.
