Cultural Genocide Conference With Ward Churchill in Ukiah March 13

Contact: Barbara and John Stephens-Lewallen (707)895-2996

--Mendocino County, February 2, 2010


Ward Churchill, the world’s leading social science expert on genocide against American Indians, has agreed to attend the Cultural Genocide Conference to be held at Mendocino College in Ukiah on March 13.

The Cultural Genocide Conference will convene in the Little Theater at nine A.M. with three hours of “First Nations Speak,” presentations by leaders of sovereign tribal nations and other Native Americans. Ward Churchill will speak beginning at one in the afternoon.

Recent charges have been made that the Marine Life Protection Act Initiative is causing cultural genocide by ignoring tribal sovereignty, and closing traditional tribal food-gathering areas essential to the survival of several North Coast tribal cultures. The Cultural Genocide Conference will receive the testimony of affected First Nations peoples. Ward Churchill offers his expert judgment and wide knowledge of struggles for food sovereignty and indigenous cultural survival worldwide.

Ward Churchill, author of “A Little Matter of Genocide,” is a scholar with a huge list of peer-reviewed social science writings in American Indian Studies. A tenured professor at the University of Colorado, he was fired for speaking the truth as he saw it. Ward Churchill’s speaking fees help pay for lawyers in his reinstatement case to defend academic freedom .

The Cultural Genocide Conference is co-sponsored by the Mendocino College American Indian Alliance Club, and Veterans for Peace Chapter 116. Admission is free. Supporters can send tax-deductible contributions toward Ward Churchill’s speaking fee and other Conference expenses to: Veterans for Peace Chapter 116, c/o Barbara and John Stephens-Lewallen, P.O. Box 455, Philo, CA 95466.
