The KNC Exhibits Hall is currently closed for renovations.
The Glen Vista Gallery is closed this weekend. Please check the website or call KNC Visitor Services to see if it has re-opened before you visit the current exhibit.
Visit us on March 9 at Maple Sugar Festival for the opening of the Gun Lake Tribe’s local exhibit highlighting the story of their own protection and restoration of mnomen, wild rice, in this region. In conjunction with the upcoming Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science exhibit from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, KNC is honored to partner with representatives of the Gun Lake Tribe in creating a companion exhibit focused on mnomen. Opening ahead of the main exhibit, this local component will tell the story of mnomen’s central role in Pottawatomi culture and of ongoing restoration projects that draw on both traditional ecological knowledge and contemporary conservation practices to protect and re-establish mnomen. We hope that you will come explore this inspiring exhibit.
Upcoming Exhibit Hall dates:
March 9: Local Mnomen Exhibit Opens
March 11-22: Exhibit hall closed
March 23: Community Opening of Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science
