The exhibits team here at the Institute of Texan Cultures has started the installation of Native Words, Native Warriors in our lower gallery this week. We’ve added a few cases of three dimensional objects to the traveling displays provided by the Smithsonian that we hope our guests will enjoy. Here’s a sneak peek at how the exhibit is coming together….
The exhibit officially opens on October 19th, and the Education department will be hosting a Family Day event for the exhibit at 10am this Saturday. For this event families and children will have the opportunity to decipher language, culture, and codes through puzzles and activities. Also, renowned expert on Native American Code Talkers, Dr. William C. Meadows, Professor of Anthropology and Native American Studies at Missouri State University, will make a presentation.
