Who is a Hoosier

Who is a Hoosier

The makeup of Indiana’s communities has changed over time, molded by the contributions of a wide range of ethnic groups. Many people ask “What is a Hoosier?”—and Indiana natives take pride in their nickname. Today people with many different backgrounds now identify themselves as Hoosiers. 

In this traveling exhibit, maps and informational graphics highlight the statistical impact of changing ethnic groups, while photographs from various IHS collections and institutions all over the state bring to life the personal stories of immigration. Made possible by Kroger.

Ideas for use: Showcase photographs and items from the major ethnic traditions in your area while this exhibit is on display. This is a 7-foot tall, freestanding exhibit requiring approximately 200 square feet of floor space.
