  2. The Library Channel is proud to present the second installment of the Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community, sponsored by ASU American Indian Studies Program, ASU Department of English, ASU American Indian Policy Institute, ASU Labriola Center, and the Heard Museum.

    Recorded on October 2, 2008 at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Wilma Mankiller, former principal chief of the Cherokee Nation and internationally known Native rights activist talks about “Challenges Facing 21st Century Indigenous People.”

    Mankiller talks of the diversity and uniqueness of the over 300 million Indigenous Peoples of the world. She also talks of indigenous duty and sense of responsibility to conserve and protect the natural world and how cultures with no memories of their origins have little understanding of their place in the world.

    Wilma Mankiller’s work as principal chief, consultant and speaker on Native issues has been acknowledged by numerous awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, one of the two highest civilian awards in the United States. She has also been recognized as American Indian Woman of the Year, received the Indian Health Service Award and entered into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

    She co-edited A Reader’s Companion to the History of Women in the U.S., published by Houghton-Mifflin, co-authored, Mankiller: A Chief and Her People, published by St. Martin’s Press, and her newest book, Every Day is a Good Day was published by Fulcrum Press in the fall of 2004.

    A video of the full event including opening remarks by Frank Goodyear and Wayne Mitchell will be coming soon on the Library Channel and ASUtv.
