It's no secret that we live in a country where, to put it too mildly, beefheaded genocide apologists shout themselves hoarse proclaiming "Hail to the Redskins!" in an effort to preserve sports "tradition" as they see it. But the ongoing plunder of Native American persons and culture extends far beyond the realm of US sports teams, as K. Tsianina Lomawaima can tell you. She's devoted her academic career to discussing the relationship between citizenship and Native sovereignty and to fighting against educational inequities that the US perpetuates through policy. In her talk, "More Than Mascots! Less Than Citizens? American Indians Talk: Why Isn’t the US Listening?" the former University of Washington professor and current professor of Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University will offer more than a few insights into misguided worldviews that silence Native voices.
