Connecting Worldviews: Indigenous Cartography in the Americas
New Science On a Sphere program! more information...
Have you ever thought about what a map is supposed to look like? For most, a specific image might come to mind. Indigenous cartography in the Americas offers us another way of looking at the world that is rooted in a different tradition. Join us at the MSU Museum on November 30th where we will begin to explore what early indigenous cartography looked like and how mapping has been used across the Americas.
This program is presented by MSU Museum's student presenter for Science on a Sphere, Najya Zaman.
Registration is required for this event.
