Abbe Museum President and CEO Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko will discuss decolonizing museum practice at College of the Atlantic’s Human Ecology Forum in McCormick Lecture Hall on Tuesday, February 13, at 4:10 pm.

During her talk, Catlin-Legutko will discuss that nature of decolonizing museum practice and how it offers opportunities for Wabanaki people to feel connected to the Abbe, promote cultural authority, and encourage collaboration and involvement with and between tribal community members and the museum field. Also, she will discuss the role of the leader in a decolonizing framework, which requires power-sharing skills and a commitment to developing group and personal cultural competencies.
