How have communities, indigenous, and non-indigenous peoples narrated and contested stories of settler colonialism in the Pacific Northwest? What are the responsibilities of historians and educators as they explore and present these narratives?
Panelists Marc Carpenter (PhD candidate, University of Oregon History Department), Dr. Josh Cerretti (WWU Departments of History, and Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies), and Michelle Vendiola (community organizer, educator, and member of the Walker River Paiute Tribe of Nevada) will engage in a facilitated conversation about past, present, and future approaches to the telling of local and regional history. Dr. Jennifer Seltz (WWU Department of History) will moderate.
This event will take place in Western Libraries Special Collections (Wilson 6th Floor). For more information, contact Elizabeth Joffrion (360) 650-3283
