One silver lining of the COVID-induced move to virtual programming is that our Social Justice Book Group is able to continue meeting beyond the summer season. On Wednesday, September 30, at 7:30 PM the group will discuss The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee: Native America from 1890 to the Present by David Treuer.
From the publisher:
“The received idea of Native American history—as promulgated by books like Dee Brown’s mega-bestselling 1970 Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee—has been that American Indian history essentially ended with the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. Not only did one hundred fifty Sioux die at the hands of the U. S. Cavalry, the sense was, but Native civilization did as well.
Copies of the book will be available to check out at the Library.
