The Sequoyah National Research Center opens its exhibition, "Toy Tipis and Totem Poles: Native American Stereotypes in the Lives of Children,” more than 1,500 objects and documents from the Hirschfelder-Molin collection, with a reception 5:30 p.m. The UALR adjunct is in the shopping center that makes up the most southern part of the campus, next to the Applied Arts department.

Read more here from UALR's announcement of a grant research center got to process the exhibit.

The Sequoyah Center, founded by UALR professors Dr. Daniel Littlefield and the late Dr. Jim Parins, is the country's largest repository of Native American periodicals and houses the Dr. J.W. Wiggins gallery, also founded by a retired UALR professor with his own vast collection of contemporary native artwork.
