Time: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This program is also being co-sponsored by the Stony Brook University Libraries, the Music Department, the History Department, and the English Department. Its goal is to make use of cultural diversity as an aid in spanning the academic gap formed by the artificial barricades that often separate disciplines.


There will be 4 presenters discussing history and current events that affected and continue to affect native peoples.  The presenters are as follows:


Dr. Lee Bitsoi, Stony Brooks Chief Diversity Officer (Navajo) Ahistoricism in the Native American Experience”
Professor Paul Kelton: “Natives and the American Story: How Indigenous Peoples Challenge us to Rethink U.S. History”
Alumni Jeremy Dennis (Shinnecock): Will discuss his photographic portfolio in relation to contemporary indigenous lifestyle, representations, and presence in America. (Jeremy Dennis exhibit “Stories, From Where We Came” will be on display on the second floor of the Staller Center from April 4th – April 20th.)
Douglas George Kanentiio (Mohawk): “Indigenous America and Current Issues. The American Revolution Colonialism & Influx of Disease & Health Decline, Environmental Change & DAPL, Native Journalism and Education”
