Our Mission at Work in 2021

Native American Heritage Month honored and amplified Native Americans in our community

In November, we celebrated Native American Heritage Month with a weekly focus on the accomplishments from prominent people who have made and are currently making an impact here in the state of Indiana and across the nation.

It is with gratitude to all people of Native American heritage that we celebrate this month.

Be Heard: Lation Experience in Indiana

Be Heard: Latino Experiences in Indiana, is a travelling exhibit from the Indiana Historical Society that explores the history of Latino/Latina/Latinx communities in Indiana. Throughout September, this exhibit was displayed at Conner Prairie and showcased collected stories of local families and their migration to the state. Guests were able to explore the almost 100-year-old journey of Indiana’s Latino population and experience a deeper cultural understanding.

Deaf Heritage Day Gives New Opportunities for Discovery

In partnership with LUNA Language Services and the Indiana School for the Deaf, our annual Deaf Heritage Day provided a great opportunity to step into the story and experience living history in a new way. The event also highlighted an exhibit showcasing the rich history of the Indiana School for the Deaf.

LUNA Language Services provided ASL interpreters to translate for our guests as they explored our grounds.
