I recently checked out the current- Smoke Signals: The Literature and Culture of Native America– over at Central’s Collins Gallery.

“Featuring highlights from the John Wilson Special Collections enhanced by historical items and artifacts provided by the Native American Youth & Family Center, this exhibition offers audiences an inside look at Native American culture and traditions.”- from the website

There were photographs by Edward S. Curtis, traditional dresses, jewelry, and baskets, and books and broadsides from various Native American writers, including Everybody Reads author Sherman Alexie.

Broadside for "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian"

The exhibit runs until March 24th. It’s worth checking out!
