Do Pomo baskets have symbolic designs like Puebloan pottery? Can a Kwakiutl “totem pole” be read like a book? Why are a few “Beloved” children of Great Plains societies showered with gifts? Using the collection of the Jesse Peter Multicultural Museum (Santa Rosa Campus), this course is designed to offer a more nuanced understanding of the unique qualities of various Native North American Societies. Join us to explore topics of symbolism, gendered art forms, traditions and transformations. K-12 educators are welcome to attend!
