Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz with Nikkita Oliver
Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, serious chronicler of Native American history, its centrality and preeminence in things of the land here, with her landmark work, An Indigenous People’s History of the United States, as well as other books written over a span of forty years and more, revisits Seattle for a special, adapted edition of her most major work. An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States for Young People (Beacon Press), has been re-fashioned by scholars Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza into a text for middle- and young adult readers, complete with points for discussion.
A good onstage discussion is more than likely this evening, as poet/activist/journalist Nikkita Oliver joins Professor Dunbar-Ortiz in discussing her books and their place in cultural actions today.
Presented by Town Hall Civics in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company.
