On Wednesday July 31st at 6pm, join Dina Gilio-Whitaker, author of As Long as Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice from Colonization to Standing Rock, in a book signing and discussion at Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center.
Through treaty violations, struggles for food and water security and protection of sacred sites, Native people have resisted environmental injustice and land incursions for hundreds of years. Join indigenous researcher and activist Dina Gilio-Whitaker to explore this history and discuss how modern environmentalists can look to Indigenous resistance for new approaches.
This event is presented as part of America Transformed: Mapping the 19th Century exhibition now on view at the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center.
