The Green Arcade

Michael Lerma (P'urhépecha) is the author of Indigenous Sovereignty in the 21st Century: Knowledge for the Indigenous Spring and is Assistant Professor of Politics and International Affairs & Applied Indigenous Studies at Northern Arizona University. His recent research has explored the efficacy of traditional Diné (Navajo) institutions of governance. Michael will discuss his research which generally advocates for future Native Nation building via consolidation of Indigenous interests and expansion of Native Nation control of norms within the international political economy.
Joining the discussion will be Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of An Indigenous Peoples' History of the UnitedStates, now in its 9th printing--since last fall!
