Museums and cultural centers occupy a critical place in society by giving authority to established narratives. These narratives, while often objective in their intent, can reinforce notions of colonial dominance and further marginalize communities who do not occupy positions of power. In this address, Dr. Lee Francis 4 will talk about the important roles of museums in promoting marginalized voices and counter narratives especially through the power of popular culture. As one of the premier scholars of Indigenous pop culture in North America, Dr. Francis brings a unique perspective as an educator and entrepreneur to the world of museum culture and presents a deep understanding of the tensions that exist in trying to accommodate current and emerging patrons and supporters. Through stories, reflections, and historical analysis, this address will provide exciting and dynamic examples of how to cultivate marginalized narratives in a way that is authentic and satisfying for patrons and stakeholders alike.
