Tonto Revisited: Native American Stereotypes Gallery Opening Reception
August 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless, however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff’s collection of stereotypical “Indian Kitch,” brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.
Exhibit opening reception will be on Thursday, August 1st from 7 – 9 pm at the Skä·noñh Center in Liverpool. Light refreshments will be available.
