November is Native American Heritage Month, a time to reflect on the important historical and contemporary contributions of Native peoples. To celebrate this month, Plains Art Museum is offering an ambitious roster of programming for everyone including an exhibition, film series, and two workshops.

Bring Her Home: Stolen Daughters of Turtle Island is an exhibition on display through November 26th at the Fargo Public Library (Downtown).

As a part of this celebration, the Museum will also be recognizing the achievements of Native filmmakers with a Native American Film Series. The Film Series, curated by local filmmaker Falcon Gott, will include free films at the Museum and the Fargo Public Library (Downtown) as follows:
