African and Native American Contact in the Americas
Anthropologist Robert Keith Collins, Ph.D., Associate Professor of American Indian Studies at San Francisco State University, will talk about the shared experiences that shaped the dynamics of African and Native American contact in the Americas.

What can be learned from the dynamics of African and Native American contact in the Americas?

To explore this question, this talk examines the shared experiences of kinship, slavery, and creative resistance that shaped the dynamics of African and Native American contact in the Americas.

Drawing on data used in the creation of the Smithsonian’s traveling banner exhibit, “IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas,” we will examine over a century of ethnographic and historical investigations into the dynamic contacts between these two great populations through the lived experiences of their African-Native American descendants.
