Decolonization heals. Decolonization reconnects people to the natural environment. Decolonization finds common ground. At the Burke Museum, we are embedding Indigenous voices in all aspects of museum practice in ways that promote decolonization and contribute to meaningful systemic change. Join us for a conversation about how we are creating an institutional culture that values and reflects the input of a broader range of voices and thus meets the needs of a broader range of audiences.
