Through story and the act of storytelling, we pass knowledge along to others. While that sentence might seem neutral or innocuous, it leaves out who a lot. Who, for example, is the teller? In her work as an activist scholar, Debbie Reese, tribally enrolled at Nambé Owingeh, invites people to think about the content of fiction and nonfiction texts. In "The Stories We Tell," Dr. Reese will talk about An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States for Young People, classic and award winning children's books like Little House on the Prairie, and institutional practices that denigrate Native peoples. She will offer guidelines on how to select materials that accurately depict Native Nations and their peoples.
