Wielding Words Like Weapons: Ward Churchill, Indigenous Activist

Time: 7:30 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Nathan Henne · nchenne@loyno.edu

Location: Miller Hall 114

Join us for an evening with acclaimed activist-intellectual Ward Churchill, author of the new book Wielding Words like Weapons: Selected Essays in Indigenism, 1995–2005 and 30 Year Anniversary edition of Pacifism as Pathology: Reflections on the Role of Armed Struggle in North America.

Ward will give an explanation of indigenism, moving from there to the concepts of the Fourth World and the "three-legged stool" of classic, internal, and settler-state colonialism. He will discuss historical and ongoing genocide of North America’s native peoples and the systematic distortion of the political and legal history of U.S.-Indian relations.
