A brief overview of American Indians including information about tribes, reservations and historical events that have shaped contemporary American Indian experiences.

This talk is open to all members of our community. We highly recommend it for area teachers as a primer for discussing American Indians in the classroom.

Rebecca Hernandez Rosser has been the Director of the American Indian Resource Center at UCSC since 2014, prior to coming to Santa Cruz she served as Assistant Director of the American Indian Studies Center at UCLA. Her academic research focuses on American Indian identity constructs in the United States, Inter-Ethnic Relations and Representation(s) of Native American People and Cultures in public space. Under her leadership the UCSC American Indian Resource Center received a 2016 Chancellor’s Diversity Award in recognition of the People of Color Sustainability Collective initiative that serves to raise awareness about the contributions people of color have made and continue to make to the environmental sustainability movement in general and at UCSC in particular.
