Social Justice Book Club: An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States (Online)

November 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us on Monday, November 23rd at 7pm EST for our Social Justice Book Club. This month we’re reading An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. We meet via Zoom.
“The first history of the United States told from the perspective of indigenous peoples.
Today in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally recognized Indigenous nations comprising nearly three million people, descendants of the fifteen million Native people who once inhabited this land. The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history. Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire.
Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples’ history radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative.”
To participate, we ask that you either purchase the book from ANI or make a donation to the store.
