An impressive collection of Native American Artifacts are now on display in Giorgetti Library, on loan from Professor Kurt Fetter, who will teach a new course in Native American Studies starting January 22nd.
The collection includes potsherds, baskets, arrowheads, jewelry, fishing gear, wampum, and animal bones including black bear and beaver. Some of it is up to 800 years old, and much is from the period around the 17th century.
Professor Fetter’s course, Introduction to Native American Studies, will include lecture, film, discussion and other media designed to introduce students to Native American history, culture, and social issues from the colonial period to present-day. Fetter is a member of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe of Akwesasne, New York, and serves as the Commissioner and Chair of Judicial Oversight for the tribe.
The collection can be viewed during regular Library hours. For more information about Professor Fetter’s course, click here.
