Virtual Student Guide Tour: This Land Is Whose Land?, with Jacqueline Zoeller


Thursday, November 4, 2021, 8:00pm to 8:30pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

On this tour commemorating Native American Heritage Month, Jacqueline Zoeller ’23 will contrast colonial visions of the Western U.S. landscape, such as Albert Bierstadt’s Rocky Mountains, “Lander’s Peak” (1863), with the realities lived and portrayed by Native American artists. Stops on the tour will include Diné artist Will Wilson’s Mexican Hat Disposal Cell (2020), a landscape photograph of Halchita, Utah, the Navajo Nation, featured in the special exhibition Devour the Land: War and American Landscape Photography since 1970; Apsáalooke artist Wendy Red Star’s photographic series Four Seasons (2006); and a group of photographs by Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara artist Zig Jackson from the 1990s that entered the museums’ collections only last year.

Jason Packineau, community coordinator of the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP), will join Zoeller to state the land acknowledgment.
