Discover a living tapestry of nations with distinct stories, identities, and contemporary leaders at the Penn Museum’s long-term exhibit Native American Voices: The People—Here and Now.

Designed to challenge preconceptions, the interactive exhibition uses historical artifacts and first-hand perspectives to reflect key themes affecting Native Americans: identity, political sovereignty, religious freedom and sacred places, language, celebrations, art, and cultural continuity.

The exhibition incorporates video, audio, poetry and other media, as well as more than 250 objects and artifacts like jewelry, clothing, toys, art, and tools, some of which date back more than 10,000 years, to tell its story.

Interactive touch screens and media displays will allow visitors to hear directly from a wide-range of contemporary Native American voices, including activists, journalists, scholar and community leaders.
