“All the Real Indians Died Off”: And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans with Dina Gilio-Whitaker
March 14 at7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dina Gilio-Whitaker, coauthor of All The Real Indians Died Off: And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans discusses the wide range of myths about Native American culture and history that have misinformed generations. Gilio-Whitaker will discuss how historical narrative myths like “Columbus Discovered America,” “Indians Were Savage and Warlike,” and many others are rooted in fears and prejudice of European settlers and in the larger political agendas of a setter state aimed at acquiring Indigenous land tied to narratives or erasure and disappearance. Co-sponsored with The Watertown Free Public Library.
