A new museum installation called "Arapaho Roots" is opening November 17 in Colorado at the Museum of Boulder. The pieces will be animated Arapaho stories put up on screens throughout the museum. 

Jordan Dresser was asked to be the show's curator a year ago and has spent time working with the museum to tie in Native history and Native art. He works for the Tribal Historic Preservation Office for the Arapaho Tribe or THPO. At a coffee shop close to the Wind River Reservation, Dresser explained to Wyoming Public Radio's Taylar Stagner that he wants the exhibit to feel alive.
