Our award-winning exhibit “Deconstructing Stereotypes: Top Ten Truths About Native Peoples." The exhibit will be on display on the Civic Center’s second floor gallery for one year and dispel stereotypes identified through surveys and interviews with American Indian and Canadian First Nations peoples.
