This event has been CANCELLED. Due to the snow, David Treuer is unable to make it to Colorado.
David Treuer will speak about and sign his new book, The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee: Native America from 1890 to the Present, on Wednesday, March 13th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
The idea of Native American history has been that American Indian history essentially ended with the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. Growing up Ojibwe on a reservation in Minnesota and researching Native life past and present for his nonfiction and novels, David Treuer has uncovered a different narrative. In The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee, Treuer traces the tribes' distinctive cultures from first contact and explores how the depredations of each era spawned new modes of survival.
