Native American Powwow and the Columbus Day Parade in the same program? Sounds like a recipe for fireworks, for sure! And yet, when we take a closer look at these celebrations we find they each affirm their respective community's internal unity and provide a positive image to the larger society. Join us as we go beyond stereotypes to discover the authentic traditions and contemporary attitudes that guide the Native American and Italian American communities of Chicago with the Italian Cultural Center & Mitchell Museum of the American Indian.
