The Riverside Metropolitan Museum will host its annual Smithsonian Week to celebrate the opening of its newest exhibit, “Cahuilla Continuum.”
“Cahuilla Continuum” tells the story of Southern California’s native people, the Cahuilla. The tribe’s history is brought to life through artifacts, including baskets, ollas, regalia, paintings, photographs and more. The exhibit features more than 160 objects from the museum’s collection as well as from the National Museum of the American Indian, Cabazon Band of Mission Indians Cultural Museum and private collectors.
Smithsonian Week is a great representation of Seizing Our Destiny’s unified city pillar. Riversiders come together to learn and pay tribute to one of the many cultures that surround us, because they all play a valuable role in making our country what it is today. We are a caring community that has compassion for all, focusing on accelerating the common good for our City as a whole.
For Smithsonian Week, Sept. 23 to Sept. 27, the museum will feature two special Smithsonian guests, who will give presentations related to the “Cahuilla Continuum” exhibit. During the week, these special guests will be visiting local schools with their programs, but they will also give free presentations Sept. 27 at the local museum.
