#NoDAPL and Settler Indigenization

Lectures

Nightingale-Brown House

Tying together four "moments" in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline, this presentation will look at the ways settlers incorporated or distanced themselves from the movement at Standing Rock, and the ways the media narratives reinforced problematic stereotypes of Native peoples through their reporting. In a fight that should be centered on Indigenous peoples and their rights, what are the ways non-Natives usurped and shifted the narrative?

Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation) is an Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnic Studies and the author of "Native Appropriations", a blog about Native representations.

Lunch served at 11:50 am.  No RSVP required.
