In partnership with the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana, this interdisciplinary public program connects Anderson’s art to the history and traditions of First Nations Americans who called the Gulf Coast home prior to European arrival. Special guests include John D. Barbry, Donna M. Pierite and Elisabeth Pierite-Mora, co-authors of The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe: Its Culture and People, and leaders of the Language & Cultural Revitalization Program of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana.

This program is part of the Museum’s Voice & Vision initiative that stages dialogues between the works of Walter Anderson and artifacts from other collections, along with voices across time and place. Voice and Vision includes four in-gallery installations composed of artworks, objects, scholarship, and documentary fieldwork, representing a diversity of stories and experiences rooted in the Southern land. Voice and Vision and its programs are financially assisted by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Mississippi Humanities Council.
