Description

The UW Alumni Association's Winter 2018 History Lecture Series will feature Joshua Reid, Associate Professor of History and American Indian Studies.

Join us for his lecture, "The Historical Roots of Indigenous Activism in the Era of Standing Rock."

Coverage of the recent activism against the Dakota Access Pipeline framed the conflict as one of American Indians as protectors of the Earth in opposition to economic development. We will widen the view of Indigenous activism — both locally and historically — revealing how activists’ long-term goals have continually sought to maintain and strengthen Native sovereignty in the face of settler colonialism.

Admission: $5–$15 (Individual lecture); $15–$50 (series pass)
