The Intercultural Diversity Center, in partnership with Moundville Archaeological Park and the Department of Museum Research and Collections, presents Cultures, Not Costumes. The exhibition explores regalia, including clothing, adornments, and jewelry, with historic and modern examples of Southeastern Native American peoples such as the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Creek. Visitors will learn about the rich and lasting history of the first peoples of our region with text panels, audiovisual elements, artifacts, and reproductions. In addition to the rich history and continued cultural contributions of our affiliated tribes, the exhibition will explore themes of cultural appropriation. It will demonstrate that the regalia of the Southeastern tribes is part of a thriving cultural tradition and rich regional heritage that endures today.  This exhibition will open on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at 3pm and conclude on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 in the Intercultural Diversity Center (2100 Student Center).
