Ideas on Tap: Cinco de Mayo
May 2 • 6:00 pm• Free
Join us for a special “Ideas On Tap” at the museum!
Taco Bowls and Drinko de Mayo: Mock Celebrations of Mexican Culture in Occupied America
It’s almost Cinco de Mayo! Time to don sombreros and down tequila shots? The short answer: no. UO associate professor Analisa Taylor explores Cinco de Mayo in Mexican history and how it is misrepresented in the U.S. today. Join a discussion about how to appreciate, and not appropriate or stereotype, Mexican heritage.
Doors open at 5, talk begins at 6 pm. We recommend arriving early to secure a seat and explore the museum.
The Museum of Natural and Cultural History presents Ideas on Tap the first Wednesday of the month, September through May. Learn more at natural-history.uoregon.edu.
