History and Art

"You can't just say, 'We're a history museum' and only push the historic aspect, you have to show people how the history impacts people right now, how it impacts the choices they make, and one of the best ways to do that is through the arts." according to a spokesman for the Charles H. Wright Museum for African-American History, Detroit.

Taino: We Are Still Here

August 9th -August 30th

The Taino are an indigenous people of Arawakan ancestry who settled in the Caribbean Islands more than two thousand years ago from the Orinoco Valley in the Amazon, South America. The Taino are known in history to be the first indigenous people to encounter Christopher Columbus, but unfortunately were written out of history due to the extinction myth.

 

This exhibit displays beautiful photographs, paintings, ceramics and jewelry of Taino artists today. The Taino people are very much alive! They are keeping their culture alive through the creations of songs, ceremony, art, storytelling, dance, pottery, jewelry, cuisine and education. See how these stimulating and breathtaking artists reclaim their culture through art.
