Native Sovereignty, American Indians in Children's Lit and #WeNeedDiverseBooks
Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:30:00 -10002015-03-04 16:30:002015-03-04 17:30:00Hamilton Library 3F
<div class="start">March 4, 2015, 4:30 pm</div>
<div class="location">Hamilton Library 3F</div>
<div class="descr">We Need Diverse Books was created in 2014 to address the lack of diversity in children's literature. That lack of diversity includes American Indians. For centuries, American Indians have been misrepresented in children's literature by images that stereotype them, thereby obscuring the diversity that exists across the 566 federally recognized sovereign tribal nations.
Dr. Debbie Reese of American Indians in Children's Literature will share information that can help attendees see problematic imagery in classic works like Little House on the Prairie. She will also talk about what teachers and librarians can look for in selecting and weeding books in their collections as they seek to support the goals of the We Need Diverse Books.
All are welcome! Refreshments will be provided.

A presentation on how the sustainability revolution changes everything
Presentation by Professor Lonnie Gamble
Director of Maharishi University of Management's Sustainable Living Department, established 10 years ago as the first fully accredited BS degree in sustainable living in the US.
Professor Gamble is expanding his program and is here to explore bringing this cutting edge program to Hawaii.
Professor Gamble is an engineer, former Big Island farmer, ecovillage designer and developer, and educator.
Come learn about the developing field of Sustainable Living and Deep Sustainability. The sustainability revolution will affect everything people do. We're in the beginning phase of a 50 to 100 year transition that will change the relationships of humans to each other and nature as radically as the information, industrial, and agricultural revolutions that preceded it.
Sustainable Living is a new academic discipline designed to give students the skills to help design, build, and maintain sustainable communities.
Hawaii deserves this.
Thursday, March 5, 1pm and 7pm
