The Crocker Art Museum will spotlight the diversity of art by American Indians this autumn with two major exhibitions, "Pueblo Dynasties: Master Potters from Matriarchs to Contemporaries" and "When I Remember I See Red: American Indian Art and Activism in California." The Museum will also host a symposium exploring complexities between Native and U.S. history and contemporary art, a free community festival, and more than a dozen exhibition-related special programs inspired by the exhibitions. Highlights include a film series curated by Maya Austin, formerly of the Sundance Institute; talks; workshops, studio classes; along with an array of offerings for families, educators, and students of all ages and backgrounds.

In programming the symposium and other events, the Crocker Art Museum consulted with a Native American Advisory Committee: Sigrid Benson, Jacklyn Calanchini, Gabe Cayton, James Allen Crouch, Cheewa James, and Christina Prairie Chicken Narvaez. The committee was instrumental in planning aspects of the programming, identifying sources of community support, and outreach to tribal members and communities. Committee members continue to assist in appreciating and acknowledging the history and culture of local Native American communities.
