“Indigenous Activism in the Midwest,” a MacTogether Webinar with Professor Katrina Phillips

Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020

noon - 1 p.m.

Location: via Zoom

How did the American Indian Movement (AIM), and other acts of resistance, arise in the Twin Cities and across the Midwest? In this Mac Together webinar, history professor Katrina Phillips will draw on personal and historical narratives to trace the history of Native resistance and activism from the 1960s until present day.

Professor Katrina Phillips is an enrolled citizen of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe. She earned her BA and PhD at the University of Minnesota, and she teaches classes on American Indian history and the history of the American West here at Macalester. Her first book, Staging Indigeneity: Salvage Tourism and the Performance of Native American History, is scheduled to come out of the University of North Carolina Press in the spring of 2021. Her next project will look at activism, environmentalism, and tourism on and around Red Cliff.
