Book Discussion: An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States

An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United Statesby Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
Introductory session, Tuesday, June 16th at 7 PM

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz’ 2014 Beacon Press title, An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, was selected as the 2019-2020 Unitarian Universalist Association “Common Read.” As such, the UUS:E Social Justice / Anti-Oppression Committee is hosting a multi-session book discussion. The introductory session is scheduled for Tuesday evening, June 16th at 7:00 PM by Zoom. The expectation is that participants will read the entire book during the summer months, and we will reconvene for more in-depth discussion in the fall. (For login information, contact Rev. Josh Pawelek at minister@uuse.org or watch for announcements in the regular UUS:E eblasts.)

In An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire. Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples’ history radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative.
