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. At that point, Ward will open the door to a broad range of issues radiating from Pacifism as Pathology, such as the role of nonviolence, armed struggle, Antifa, and the question of appropriate tactics of historical and current resistance movements.
After, there will be time for questions and answers, books will be for sale, with a book signing to follow. Join us!
