Native American Speaker


Native American scholar and activist Andrea Smith will discuss the topic of her new book, "Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide," on Wednesday, April 19, 2-4 p.m., in the Bronco Student Center's Centaurus Room. In this book, Smith places Native American women at the center of her analysis of sexual violence, challenging both conventional definitions of the term and conventional responses to the problem. Smith is co-founder of INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence, a grassroots, multi-racial feminist organization. The free event is sponsored by the Native American Student Center, Stop Violence Center, ReEntry & WoMen?s Resource Center and the LaBounty Chair of Interdisciplinary Applied Knowledge Charlene Teters.
