Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2018. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

Bruce Duthu considers how Native writers, artists and other humanists have confounded and complicated the national origin story. In the process, they have challenged the United States to live up to its professed commitments to justice for Native peoples as expressed in federal law and Indian affairs policy.

Led by: N. Bruce Duthu, Samson Occom Professor of Native American Studies, Dartmouth College
