Library ( Michele May)___ Hello friends… Dissertation Presentation with Dr. Lawrence Bradley
@ Woksape Tipi Library Friday, November 8, 3pm. Dinosaurs and Indians: Paleontology Resource Dispossession from Lakota Lands Abstract: The emergence of vertebrate paleontology as an established, scientific discipline can in part be attributed to large vertebrate fossils found on land dispossessed from indigenous populations from around the world. Specifically, geographic locations of the North American continental interior are known to yield fossiliferous stratigraphic sequences. The Great Sioux Nation's boundaries were initially defined in the 1851 Ft. Laramie Treaty. The boundaries basically included land west of the Missouri River in South Dakota; north of the Platte River of western Nebraska; east of the Powder River, Wyoming. Small areas of southeast corner Montana and southwest North Dakota were also included. On April 29, 1868 another treaty was concluded and reaffirmed the borders of the Great Sioux Nation. I argue that vertebrate fossils are another natural resource dispossessed from the subjugated peoples within the central plains of the United States. Founding fathers of American paleontology have to some degree built their careers with fossils collected within treaty boundaries. As the Sioux land base retracted through dispossession and selling of allotted land to non-tribal members, the fossil dispossession never ceased. Throughout history valuable fossils have been collected from Sioux lands and used to promote museum exhibits and create university departments. Recent fossil disputes between various tribes and paleontologists have a better chance of being resolved when studying the historical geography of paleontology resources. A new concept of cultural physical geography would demand a multidisciplinary approach and increase chances for modern paleontologists to be sensitive to issues that are situated in the physical environment in which they seek to conduct their research. Furthermore, the methodology of an historical geography narrative within Native American geography may expose Indigenous paleontology resource dispossession and allow paleontology to conscientiously advance into the twenty-first century. Author: Dr. Lawrence W. Bradley was raised by his stepfather, Lester Kills Crow. He is currently a faculty member in the Geography and Geology Department at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

5TH Annual American Indian Studies Association Conference: February 6 - 7, 2014 — Tempe, AZ The CONFERENCE THEME: Activism: Continuity, Resistance, Obligation Activism, viewed broadly, has its roots and motivations in maintaining, protecting, revitalizing, and strengthening American Indian nations, cultures, languages, knowledge, sovereignty, lands and spaces. American Indian nations and peoples continue to engage in diverse arenas of activism and to develop tactics that seek to protect Indigenous ways of being. While the idea or ideal of activism conjures positive and negative images of political movements and protests, many other actions constitute acts of activism. Today, many of the challenges of the past remain, yet new, unexpected threats to American Indian survival have emerged. This year’s conference looks to explore and broaden discussions about the reasons, motivations, and debates that move different people, organizations, nations and/or communities to challenge and resist various systems of oppression. What new challenges do American Indian people face in the 21st century? How are indigenous peoples generating new paradigms of action as well as maintaining cultural integrity and responsibilities? Why have the debates about activism among scholars, activists, and communities created contention, and what is at stake in what is contested? http://americanindian.clas.asu.edu/events.
