Title: Yakama Rising: Indigenous Cultural Revitalization, Activism, and Healing
Yakama peoples have responded to more than a century of historical trauma with a resurgence of grassroots activism and cultural revitalization. Please join us as Dr. Jacobs discusses this process through case studies of dance, language, and food traditions, documented in her new book, Yakama Rising (University of Arizona Press, 2013). This is being held in conjunction with the Yakama Authors Festival and Writing Workshop, details will be provided at a later date.
