New Exhibition Highlights Indigenous Perspectives

A traveling exhibition will highlight seven native Appalachian artists in Drinko Library until Dec. 11. Titled “Indigenous Appalachia,” the exhibit is a part of the WVU Art in the Libraries Program and explores ancestral and contemporary perspectives of the Indigenous people, focusing specifically on the Appalachian area.

The main goal of the exhibit is to acknowledge the underrepresented culture and history of Appalachia’s Indigenous people, highlighting their successes and perspectives.

Nine businesses are also sponsoring the “Indigenous Appalachia” exhibition, including the Marshall Libraries and Online Learning. Marshall sponsors the exhibit as a way to introduce the Indigenous culture to students.

“The exhibit helps celebrate Appalachia Indigenous art while also offering lots of information about the artists and tribes that are a part of this region,” Michelle Alford, the library information systems technologist, said. “We thought it would be a nice thing to bring to Marshall to share with the community.”
