IVDM Rocky Readers: May Book Club

THE ROCKY READERS BOOK CLUB IS BACK! On Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 6:00PM, IVDM will be hosting a book club discussion for Know We Are Here: Voices of Native California Resistance, edited by Terria Smith.

From the book's back cover: "Collecting over twenty-five essays written by more than fifteen California Indian authors, Know We Are Here surveys many of the ways California’s Indigenous communities are resisting the legacies of genocide. Focusing on the particular histories, challenges, and dynamics of life in Native California—which are often very different from elsewhere in the United States—the book collects essays from writers across the state. It encompasses the perspectives of both elders and the rising generation, and the contributors include activists, academics, students, memoirists, and tribal leaders."

Join us in journeying through this collection of powerful native stories as we ready for our discussion on Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 6:00PM. You can find copies of Know We Are Here in our museum's gift shop! See you there!
