Join New York Times bestselling author and award-winning scholar David Treuer (Ojibwe) for a special evening exploring his groundbreaking book The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee. A finalist for the National Book Award, The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee explores what we can see when we look beyond tragedy, which has been the dominant historical narrative and narrative mode about Native American history. But this way of seeing Native American history has often elided much of Native American and American history and continues to warp the Native present tense. What is lost when we cleave to the tragic mode, and what, ultimately, is the best way to think about the Native American past, present, and future? Sponsored by the History Department and the Missouri Historical Society.
