Fall 2019: Deborah Miranda

Elizabeth Cook Lynn (Crow Creek Lakota scholar and author) says that a nation which does not tell its own story cannot be said to be a nation at all. But how do you claim your story when all you have are the fragments left after the triple genocides of missionization, Gold Rush and land grab? 

Join the Office of the Provost, the Women's Resource Center, and the Program for Native American Studies to hear Deborah Miranda discuss the methodology and research behind constructing a multi-genre mosaic for her tribe, The Esselen Nation, out of the shards of California Indian history. 

Dr. Miranda's talk will be held in Room 103 Oglebay Hall, on October 3rd at 6:30pm. 

This talk is sponsored by the WVU Office of the Provost Dan and Betsy Brown Lecture Series.Deborah Miranda Flyer
