Seminars & Symposia Program

The Seminars and Symposia Program is the intellectual home for the investigation, discussion, and understanding of issues regarding Native communities in the Western Hemisphere and Hawai‘i. Through the Seminars and Symposia Program, the museum promotes meaningful study, discussion, and civic engagement, providing a national forum for historical and contemporary topics of concern and interest to Native peoples and the general public.

Selected themes include cultural values, the environment, encounters, and Native achievements, as well as the content and ideas presented in the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibitions. In addition, the program will develop and host public forums, ranging from intimate roundtable discussions to seminars that are webcast around the world.
