The Odd Mondays Series at Folio Books presents Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz reading and signing
"An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States (Revisioning American History)"
Monday, November 3rd, 7 PM
3957 24th Street, San Francisco

"In this riveting book, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz decolonizes American history and strips us of our forged innocence, shocks us into new awarenesses and draws a straight line from the sins of our fathers' settler-colonialism, the doctrine of discovery, the myth of manifest destiny, white supremacy, theft and systematic killing to the contemporary condition of permanent war, invasion and occupation, mass incarceration, and the constant use and threat of state violence. Best of all, she points a way beyond amnesia, paralyzing guilt, or helplessness toward discovering our deepest humanity in a project of truth-telling and repair. "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States "will forever change the way we read history and understand our own responsibility to it." - Bill Ayers

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz grew up in rural Oklahoma, the daughter of a farmer and half-Indian mother. Active in the American Indian Movement for more than four decades, she is known for her lifelong commitment to national and international social justice issues. After earning her PhD in history at U.C.L.A., she taught in the Native American Studies Program at California State University and helped found the departments of Ethnic Studies and Women's Studies. Her 1977 book, The Great Sioux Nation was the fundamental document at the first international conference on Indians in the Americas, held at the United Nations' headquarters in Geneva. She is the author or editor of seven books, including Outlaw Woman, a Memoir of the War Years, 1960-1975, and Blood on the Border: Memoir of the Contra War.

"An indispensable text for students of all ages The American Indians' perspective has been absent from colonial histories for too long, leaving continued misunderstandings of our struggles for sovereignty and human rights." – Peterson Zah, former President of the Navajo Nation
