Beautiful Games: American Indian Sport & Art

August 03 - October 13

Sports have long been an important part of life in American Indian tribal communities. Lacrosse and surfing are attributed to indigenous peoples. In modern times, Native athletes quickly gravitated to sports like baseball, basketball, football and rodeo, and many American Indians have excelled in modern sports. Competing in sports in tribal communities teaches cooperation, consensus, compromise and teamwork, all of which are pillars of indigenous societies. This exhibit features artwork, artifacts, history and discussions about sports and its role in tribal life. Thank you to our sponsors CHI St. Anthony Hospital and C.M. Bishop, Jr. Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.

Opening day is FREE!
