On view are nearly 70 original watercolors used in the Eagle Books -- a diabetes-prevention series developed for Native schoolchildren -- in which animal characters encourage physical activity, healthy eating, and learning about diabetes prevention from the elders. The works are by Patrick Rolo (Bad River Band of Ojibwe) and Lisa Fifield (Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin, Black Bear Clan) for the book series written by Georgia Perez (Nambe Pueblo).
