Native American Indigenous Heritage Month Calendar

Signature Event Native American Indigenous Heritage Month 2017

 

Come out to our kickoff celebration and learn more about
upcoming events for the Native American and Indigenous
Heritage Month. Sponsored by Native American and Indigenous
Alliance and Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why do the stories we tell ourselves about Pocahontas, Christopher Columbus,
and First Thanksgiving appeal so strongly to most people in the U.S.? What do
these stories reveal and what do they hide? Join Dr. Genetin-Pilawa for a presentation
and discussion about “comfortable fictions” in U.S. culture and what we can learn if we
view these stories with fresh eyes.

Sponsored by Native American and Indigenous Alliance, Diversity, Inclusion, and
Multicultural Education, and Department of History and Art History

 

 

An Indigenous environmental activist from Peru
takes on the large businesses that are destroying
the Indigenous Amazon for the extraction of
oil, minerals, and gas.

Sponsored by Native American and Indigenous Alliance,
Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education, Film and
Video Studies, and Gateway Library

 

 

 

 

Join us in our closing celebration of Indigenous heritage
with food, dialogue, and music by Indigenous DJs. They
