Join us to celebrate the educational exhibition, “Navigating Narratives: The Corps of Discovery in Titonwan Territory” from the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies (CAIRNS), curated by Craig Howe.

5 – 6 p.m. | Free Reception
6 – 7 p.m. | Poetry reading hosted by exhibition curator Craig Howe

This exhibition examines the interactions between the boatmen of the Corps of Discovery Expedition and the Titonwanian people through first-person accounts from Sept. 23 to Sept. 30, 1804, as documented in the daily journals by Corps members William Clark, Patrick Gass, John Ordway and Joseph Whitehouse. CAIRNS has invited contemporary visual artists, poets and musicians to create works related to one or more of the journal entries. Seventy creatives created songs, artworks and poems for this exhibit. Though all of them are citizens of the United States of American, 30 are also citizens of American Indian tribes.

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome!

“Navigating Narratives: The Corps of Discovery in Titonwan Territory” is on view at the South Dakota Art Museum May 4 – September 1, 2024. For more information, visit www.southdakotaartmuseum.com.
