W&M American Indian Students Speak
January 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
This event is part of the One Book One Community partnership between Williamsburg Regional Library and William & Mary. The month-long series will include a January 24 discussion with Tommy Orange, author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist There There. His novel examines the lives of 12 different Native Americans in the week leading up to the first Oakland Powwow, and the events that will engulf them all. Members of William & Mary’s American Indian Student Association will talk about their experiences with the powwow culture and the role it plays in their lives They’ll also show images and talk about the regalia powwow participants use in honoring their heritage and creating their own identities.
