 “To Indigenize the art museum is to understand that everybody in each individual community has their own equally beautiful, equally complex, equally deep aesthetic system.” (Jill Ahlberg Yohe) 
 
Thank you to those who joined us for our first conversation of the series on and welcomed guest Jill Ahlberg Yohe to our community. Reflecting on their own curatorial expertise, Dr. McMaster and Dr. Ahlberg Yohe discussed the importance of mentorship and experience while engaging with Indigenous art at an institutional level.
