Dr. Whitaker will reveal the CWA blanket as an affecting presence that embodies this remarkable textile not only as art but one which represents the personal and collective identities of the Navajo, Cheyenne and US military, the least of which is its identity with horrific mayhem and murder at Sand Creek, Colorado in 1864. This is Dr. Whitaker’s first presentation in five years and it promises to be a most interesting talk.
Dr. Whitaker is the former director, Indian Arts Research Center, School for Advanced Research, Santa Fe, New Mexico; former chief curator at the Southwest Museum and San Diego Museum of Man. She is a Current Research Associate, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
