AitA: Class 8

 

 

From syllabus:

The Library of Congress is a definitively colonial institution. Throughout its history, voices of indigenous people have been in turn ignored, erased, and neglected. In this class we’ll examine this problematic history and look at some ways that indigeneity is being re-addressed. In particular, we’ll investigate the story of how 31 cylinders containing Passamaquoddy songs have revently been restored and re-born.

Guest Speaker: Jane Anderson
