A new traveling exhibition, Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, is on display at UM’s in the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library. The exhibition examines concepts of health and medicine among contemporary American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian people.
The traveling exhibition, produced by the National Library of Medicine, explores the connection between wellness, illness, and cultural life through a combination of interviews with Native people, artwork, objects and interactive media.
The exhibition is open to the public through March 13 during normal library hours:
- 7 a.m.-2 a.m. Monday-Thursday
- 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday
- 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday
