In addition to Native-themed food and beverages, the reception will feature opening remarks by Brian Rossman, associate dean of the MSU Library, followed presentations related to wellness and culture. The presentations take place at 6:00 pm near the CyberDiscovery Wall and include:
Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land and spirit. Several iPads accompany Native Voices and will provide an enhanced visitor experience through videos, images and personal stories.
MSU was one of 104 libraries across the country chosen to host the traveling exhibition after a competitive application process. The exhibit is provided by the National Library of Medicine, an arm of the National Institutes of Health. It also coordinates the 6,000-member National Network of Libraries of Medicine that provides access to health information in towns across the U.S.
