About the exhibition

Native Truths is a permanent exhibition that examines many Native American stories in a series of rotating galleries. One of those galleries explores the sites within Chaco Canyon in New Mexico. And, it is here that Bill’s panoramas serve as backgrounds to a deeper examination of Chaco’s history and importance.

Other galleries in the exhibition explore:

  • The resilience of the Chicago Native community
  • California basketry traditions passed on across generations
  • Music-making through the eyes of a young Lakota hip hop artist
  • Meskwaki efforts to revitalize heirloom and ancestral plants   
  • The Pawnee Earth Lodge
