Join us for an informal discussion on the book "Everything You Wanted to Know about Indians But Were Afraid to Ask" written by Anton Treuer. This discussion will answer common questions that people may otherwise be "afraid to ask".
This event will be a discussion on the introduction of the book and the intent of the group. It will be held at Union South (check TITU for room location) on December 7th from 6:30-7:30pm.
"What have you always wanted to know about Indians? Do you think you should already know the answers—or suspect that your questions may be offensive? In matterof-fact responses to over 120 questions, both thoughtful and outrageous, modern and historical, Ojibwe scholar and cultural preservationist Anton Treuer gives a frank, funny, and sometimes personal tour of what’s up with Indians, anyway.
• What is the real story of Thanksgiving?
• Why are tribal languages important?
• What do you think of that incident where people died in a sweat lodge?
White/Indian relations are often characterized by guilt and anger. Everything You Wanted to Know about Indians But Were Afraid to Ask cuts through the emotion and builds a foundation for true understanding and positive action."
