On this tour commemorating Native American Heritage Month, Jacqueline Zoeller ’23 will discuss Native American portraiture, including art both of and by Native individuals, to examine the tensions between subject and object revealed by these portraits. Stops on this tour will include Charles Bird King’s portrait of Winnebago leader Hoowanneka (Little Elk) (1824), Mississippi Band of Choctaw and Cherokee artist Jeffrey Gibson’s RED POWER (2021), and Apsáalooke artist Wendy Red Star’s photographic series Four Seasons (2006).

Jacqueline Zoeller has collaborated with the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP) for this program’s land acknowledgment.

In collaboration with HUNAP, the Ho Family Student Guides have created a digital collection of some of the works at the Harvard Art Museums that speak to the Native American experience. This collection will help spur further conversations about Native American representation at the museums.
