UHC will host and facilitate discussions of the We Shall Remain broadcasts in five rural communities near American Indian populations in partnership with local libraries, museums and civic centers. Discussions will be led by tribal members covering such issues as betrayal, culture class, Indian identity, Pan-Indian movement, assimilation vs. independence, accommodation and acculturation, “removal” as a solution to conflicts over land, cultural identity, leadership and resistance, and social movements.
In conjunction with the We Shall Remain broadcast, UHC also will loan sets of books from its collection of titles by prominent American Indian authors to reading groups across the state. Through UHC’s Public Square program, two speakers are available for bookings by community groups: Larry Cesspooch, speaking about “Utah History Through Native Eyes,” and Lucille Hunt discussing “The Changing Navajo.” For details on how to request books or arrange for a free speaker, call 801.359.9670 or visit www.utahhumanities.org
