Please join the OHSU Library on Thursday, January 23, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm for a reception celebrating our hosting of Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, a traveling exhibition to U.S. libraries. The exhibition is on display at the Library from January 3, 2020 to March 10, 2020.
Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land, and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) developed and produced Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness. The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, in partnership with NLM, tours the exhibition to America’s libraries.
