A Student History of Haskell Indian Nations University

In this episode, Natalie discusses the collaborative efforts between the Watkins Museum, Haskell Indian Nations University and Humanities Kansas to create the newest exhibit on display called From Then to Now: A Student History of Haskell Indian Nations University. The exhibit showcases artifacts on loan from Haskell including a cast of the Haskell Crest which was designed and sculpted by Dr. Richard West (1912-1996) a member of the Cheyenne tribe who was a student at Haskell in the late 1930s, an artist, and an educator at Haskell in the 1970s.
