Native American Historical Activism
August 15+ 18, 6-8pm ET
By viewing and reading sources surrounding indigenous American activism, we complicate the story often told in classrooms surrounding Native American history. Whether standing up to Indian Boarding Schools or claiming Alcatraz, this class will highlight the agency Indians have carried in this country. Sources will include Sherman Alexie’s Indian Education, “The Occupation of Alcatraz”, and “We Hold the Rock.”
