Taíno: A Symposium in Conversation with the Movement

Join the Smithsonian Latino Center and the National Museum of the American Indian for a symposium to celebrate the exhibition Taíno: Native Heritage and Identity in the Caribbean. Experts representing Indigenous studies, genetic science, anthropology, linguistics, and other academic disciplines will explore exhibition themes in dialogue with Taíno/Indigenous Caribbean community leaders and cultural workers. The symposium will explore the history of the Taíno movement, particularly through the experiences and perspectives of its participants. It seeks to support the exchange of knowledge produced within academic fields among subject experts, the diverse Taíno community, and other Caribbean people of Native descent, with a special emphasis on advancing the voices of women scholars and participants in this contemporary Native heritage movement.

ASL & English/Spanish interpretation provided.

The symposium is cosponsored with the Smithsonian Latino Center.
