Women of Color: The Power of Protest is a series of three panel discussions that draw attention to activism and social justice through the lens of historic and contemporary women of color. This collaboration between the National Portrait Gallery, the National Museum of African Art, and the National Museum of the American Indian takes Smithsonian Institution collections and exhibitions as starting points for conversations about the socio-political challenges that women of color have confronted and overcome, and which they continue to revolutionize.
(Series 2) Native American Women Activists: Resistance, Resilience, and Passing the Torch
The National Museum of the American Indian hosts the second of three events in Women of Color: The Power of Protest with the panel—Native American Women Activists: Resistance, Resilience, and Passing the Torch. Join us to learn about groundbreaking Native American women activists such as Zitkala-Ša and Susette La Flesche Tibbles who used their voices for change. Contemporary activists, writers, and scholars describe how this legacy of activism and quest for social justice continues and strengthens today. Panelists will also address how Native American women maintain self-identity in a world where established power structures hinder their sovereignty and self-determination.
