This talk will explore the complex life of the noted author and linguist.
McMahon is the chief curator of the IACB. His focus is on the artwork of contemporary American Indian and Alaskan Native artists, working to preserve and display the rich collections of Native American arts and crafts.
He supervises the operations of three IACB museums:
