Though still a product of his time, William S. Hart was always sympathetic to the mistreatment of indigenous people by the United States government.

At this open house we will share what we do know (and also what we don’t know) about the Native American art objects in Bill Hart’s personal collection. We will highlight the personal and professional ties that Bill Hart had with indigenous people, and we hope to honor the original inhabitants of the land that is now Hart Park, whose descendants are members of the Fernandeno Tataviam Band of Mission Indians.
