Recognizing the reality of war and massacre, this scholarly symposium takes new approaches to examining violence in past and present-day Native communities by engaging the intersections of a broad array of themes, including:

  • historical memory
  • destruction of homelands and environments
  • appropriation of arts and cultural heritage
  • gendered assault
  • enslavement, and
  • captivity.
