Professor to Speak at São Paula Museum of Art

Posted on: July 19, 2019

Scott Manning Stevens, associate professor and director of Native American and Indigenous studies, is participating in a multinational seminar in Brazil about the relationship between Indigenous people and museums. “I will focus on the Skä-noñh—Great Law of Peace Center [at Onondaga Lake, near campus] to address the contest between settler-state narratives and Indigenous histories of place,” says Stevens, a citizen of Canada's Akwesasne Mohawk Nation. The renowned teacher-scholar frequently lends his expertise to other organizations, including the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha and the Adirondack Experience (formerly the Adirondack Museum) in Upstate New York.
