She ...will be honored by IAIA with an honorary doctorate degree this May.

Harjo will be present at the opening reception on Friday, May 13, from 6-9pm. The reception is free and open to the public.

For the closing reception, Sunday, May 22nd, 2-4pm, Celeste Conner (Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache) will create an installation and a performance piece.
