#HandsOffMyHeritage is the current exhibition in the Duhesa Gallery of the Lory Student Center featuring 10 Native American artists addressing different aspects of the appropriation of Native culture. The LSC Arts Program has collaborated with the Native American Cultural Center to bring the exhibition to campus. For those who do not know the meaning of the term cultural appropriation, the following definition is displayed on the wall in the gallery: “The unauthorized use or misuse of intellectual property, cultural beliefs, religious imagery or traditional garments from one culture by an outside culture”. This exhibition will be part of the 2016 Native American Heritage month in November. On November 10 the keynote speaker, Dr. Adrienne Keene, for Native American Heritage month at CSU will have a discussion with participating artist Jacob Meders from 12-1 pm in the Wold Resource Center located in the Visual Arts building. Following this event also on November 10 will be a reception to celebrate the works of these artists in the Duhesa Gallery from 4:30-6:30 pm.
