Talk by Dian Million (University of Washington)

The Department of Anthropology presents

Second Biannual Krystyna Sieciechowicz Memorial Lecture and Colloquium

We are the land and the land is us: Indigenous land, lives and embodied ecologies in the 21st century

Dian Million is an Associate Professor at the University of Washington whose research explores Native American gender, health, race and ethnicity. Her most recent book, Therapeutic Nations: Healing in an Age of Indigenous Human Rights (University of Arizona Press, Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies Series, 2013) is a discussion of trauma as a political narrative in the struggle for Indigenous self-determination in an era of global neoliberalism.

In her talk Prof. Million will build on Krystyna Sieciechowicz's elemental work on kinship and land stewardship in the north by exploring how enduring relations with place and land, along with mobile kinships provide a continuing resistance to settler colonialism.

We are thrilled that Prof. Million has agreed to come present our second biannual Krystyna Sieciechowicz Memorial Lecture and hope you will be able to join us. Her talk will be followed by a reception in Croft Chapter House.

8-9pm, University College Croft Chapter House, Room 183, 15 King's College Circle

The event is free and open to all. Registration required. For further information, please contact the Department of Anthropology at (416) 978-4805.
