Since the early sixteenth century, Indigenous people from North America have been travelling to Britain. They came as captives and critics, poets and performers, athletes and diplomats, and these journeys have continued into the twenty-first century.
Find out more about this project and the North American indigenous people's connections with Scotland, in a talk and discussion led by Professor David Stirrup from the University of Kent and Scottish historian, Professor Yvonne McEwen.
You are also invited to view our exhibition, Beyond the Spectacle on the Central Library mezzanine level.
