In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, the Verona Public Library will offer an author lecture from the directors of the Institute for Indigenous Studies at Lehigh University. The program will be live on Zoom on Wednesday, November 9, at 7 p.m.
Authors Dr. Sean M. Daley and Dr. Christine Makosky Daley (professors and co-directors of the Institute for Indigenous Studies at Lehigh University) will discuss their upcoming book, “The Complexities of American Indian Identity in the 21st Century.”
Between 2011 and 2015, over 700 Native Americans from all over the United States participated in Native 24/7, a study that delved into modern-day American Indian identities. Topics such as colonization, tribal enrollment, blood quantum, language, spirituality, family, and community, were examined. The new book will explore the findings of this study using the voices and stories of its participants.
