Culture Connect Featured Event
An event to benefit the preservation & care of IAIS collections. Hear the hypotheses. Examine the evidence. Form your own conclusions. You be the detective! Did this jacket actually belong to Sitting Bull? Was this his powder horn? Could Tecumseh’s war club really be housed at the unassuming Institute for American Indian Studies Museum & Research Center, tucked away in the Litchfield Hills? Come Unravel the Mystery for a private showing of these and other exquisite pieces from our collections. Hear expert analysis from Dr. Lucianne Lavin, respected archaeologist and our Director of Research and Collections while enjoying the unique music of the Mixashawn Jazz Trio, sampling of Native American inspired foods, and local wines!
