Jancita Warrington will facilitate our visit to the Haskell Cultural Center and Museum, where she serves as the Director. She will guide us through its permanent exhibition, which focuses on the history of Haskell Institute and its development into a four-year tribal university, and share its rich collection of material culture and archival documents. We will have ample time to view special and temporary exhibitions during our time with Ms. Warrington as well.
