You will find Ortiz's current book, “All the Real Indians Died Off. And 20 Other Myths about Native Americans”, co-authored with Dina Gilio-Whitaker, enlightening as the two scholars and activists tackle a wide range of myths about Native American culture and history that have misinformed generations. Tracing how these ideas evolved, and drawing from history, the authors disrupt long-held and enduring myths.

Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz’s last book, “An Indigenous Peoples History of the United States” is the first history of the United States told from the perspective of indigenous peoples and was recipient of the American Book Award in 2015.

This event is offered as a fundraiser for the Texas organization Society of Native Nations with donations going to fight theTrans-Pecos Pipeline in the Big Bend area by helping to establish the Two Rivers Camp, forming resistence now. Suggested donations for the lecture is $10 - $5 for students and low income and we will have waivers/ scholarships available as well.

If you are unable to attend but would like to donate to the fight to preserve the "Jewel of Texas" - Big Ben National Park, please do so here.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
