CommUnity Conversations: Ten Things You Should Know About American Indian History @ Rudder 501
Nov 14 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

A recent anthology titled “Why You Can’t Teach United States
History without American Indians” makes the powerful argument
that the experiences of indigenous North Americans are
essential for understanding the history of our nation. This
presentation will discuss ten key points that can help us see the
centrality of Native Americans to the American experience, while
also working to dispel common misperceptions about indigenous
peoples. Dr. Hudson received her PhD in American Studies from
Yale University and is now an Associate Professor in the
Department of History at Texas A&M University.
