Opened on May 18, the exhibition “Kindred: Traditional Arts of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians” will be on view in the Main Gallery at the MSU Museum through July 30.
In partnership with the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, the exhibition includes historic and contemporary examples of Odawa arts and crafts, including quill boxes, beadwork, regalia, basketry and ceramics. Through these finely crafted objects, thematic threads are woven together to explore the economic drivers, environmental factors, and challenges inherent in sustaining tradition, creative practice, and identity in the 21st century. Many of the artifacts on display are part of the MSU Museum’s cultural collections.
