An Indigenous Peoples' History of United States Author coming to Portland

CLDC is co-sponsoring a series of events in Portlandwith radical scholar and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. Her most recent book, An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, came out last year and has been stirring up a lot of attention and enthusiasm. Spanning more than 300 years, this bottom-up peoples’ history radically challenges the founding mythos of the United States and reframes how we view our past and present. 

Roxanne has been a cutting-edge intersectional activist and academic since the 1960’s. Go to her website for more about her own story.

She'll be giving three public talks: Tuesday, February 17 at 3 p.m. at PCC-Cascade, Student Union Room 204;Wednesday, February 18, 2 p.m. Reed College, Eliot 103 and 6 p.m. PSU Native Center.
