Finding Home: An Indigenous Perspective on Land, Language, and Identity (Chicago Public Library) – VIRTUAL
November 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join celebrated author, professor, and activist Dr. Anton Treuer for a unique perspective on Indigenous land, language, and identity as it relates to the broader experience of being and becoming American. What is the importance of connection to mother land, language, and culture? How does identity transform when we are no longer living in our indigenous space?
Anton Treuer is Professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University and author of 19 books, including The Assassination of Hole in the Day, Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians but Were Afraid to Ask, Atlas of Indian Nations, Warrior Nation and The Indian Wars. His equity, education, and cultural work has put him on a path of service around the region, the nation, and the world.
This program is co-sponsored by CPL’s Native American Heritage Committee and presented in honor of Native American Heritage Month.
