IHS’s Who Is a Hoosier? Traveling Exhibit

For Immediate Release

Culver, Ind.—Many people ask "What is a Hoosier?"—and while the term's origins may be up for debate, a traveling exhibit from the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) looks at how people with many different backgrounds have come to take pride in the nickname. From July 31 through September 3, the Culver-Union Township Public Library will host the exhibit Who Is a Hoosier? in the lower level of the library, located at 107 N. Main St. in Culver, Indiana.

The traveling exhibit uses maps and informational graphics to highlight the statistical impact of changing ethnic groups over time. It shows how the comings and goings of newcomers to the state, through immigration or migration, have created the Indiana we know today—and will continue to shape its future.

In addition, photographs from various IHS collections and from institutions across the state bring to life the personal stories of immigration. Who Is a Hoosier? is made possible by Kroger.
