SUB 1, Meeting Room 3A
They say history is written by the victors. This dinner dialogue will focus on the importance of uplifting counter narratives of history. This issue concerns not only Native American and Indigenous peoples, but other groups throughout the world who have been marginalized and disenfranchised through systems of colonialism and imperialism. How do mainstream narratives impact those groups, and larger societies? Why are counter narratives important, and how can they be uplifted? These are some of the ideas and questions we will discuss over free pizza and treats. This event is sponsored by the Native American and Indigenous Alliance as part of Native American Heritage Month.
