I am presenting my research on metal gorgets given to Native North Americans and Australian Aboriginals at the “Entangled Antipodes: Negotiating Art and Empire in Australasia” symposium at Yale University. My research draws from my research trip to Australia in summer 2015 and interviews with contemporary indigenous artists in Australia and the United States.
