Dancers from Meskwaki Nation, based in Tama, Iowa, will perform Monday, Nov. 13, in the Memorial Union Great Hall. The 6 p.m. performance precedes a 7 p.m. lecture by Matika Wilbur, a photographer and social documentarian from the Swinomish and Tulalip tribes in the Pacific Northwest. Wilbur's talk, "Changing the Way We See Native America," highlights her three-year "Project 562" to photograph more than 560 tribes throughout America. The events are part of Indigenous Heritage Month programming by the lectures committee.
