Marae Encounter - Restoring Balance: Homeland, Environment, and Generations

Join Field Museum, Filipino American, and Native American communities on Chicago's marae at The Field Museum to learn from others and share your perspectives on what makes us family, especially during times of change. The evening will begin with a Maori welcome, followed by a panel presentation and discussion. The conversation and interaction at the encounter will be curated into additional display panels for the We Are Family exhibit.
