Native Voices: ʻĀina Forum - Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

September 17, 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies

Colloquium by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Professor Emerita of History and of Ethnic Studies at California State University - East Bay and a leading scholar and activist of Native American History and Rights, will present her work on the Sioux Nation’s struggle to regain land rights to the He Sapa (Black Hills), South Dakota, and on her decades of work on the International Indian Treaty Council, which formed in 1974 to seek international recognition for the Sioux Nation and other indigenous nations through treaties and agreements ensuring sovereignty. The talk dovetails with the publication of the new edition of The Great Sioux Nation: Siting in Judgment on America - An Oral History of the Sioux Nation and Its Struggle for Sovereignty (Bison Books, 2013). Dunbar-Ortiz also authored Roots of Resistance: A History of Land Tenure in New Mexico and worked on the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
