This event does not require registration; see further details below.

Join the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP) for a conversation with Paulina Alexis. Alexis is an actress, artist, and proud member of the Stoney tribe of the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation in central Alberta, Canada, where she was raised. She is best known for her role as Willie Jack in the series Reservation Dogs.

This will be the fourth annual HUNAP Lecture; each talk is intended to elevate and promote the sophistication of Native ideas, arts, literature, and culture. Last year’s lecture was delivered by author Tommy Orange, an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. To learn more about HUNAP, visit the program’s website.

Free admission, but seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The lecture will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level. Please enter the museums via the entrance on 480 Broadway. Doors will open at 5:30pm.
