Jacki Thompson Rand, associate professor of history and the coordinator of Native American and indigenous studies at the University of Iowa, will give a public presentation, "Revising Removal, Indigenizing the Midwest."
She is the author of "Kiowa Humanity and the Invasion of the State" (2008), and previously worked at the Smithsonian Institution engaging tribal communities in support of the National Museum of the American Indian.
Her talk will discuss the importance of understanding removal of indigenous people from the U.S. and the possibilities of recognizing such removals, on campus, in the Quad Cities community, and in the region.
This lecture is made possible by the Organization of American Historians Distinguished Lectureship Program. Dr. Rand's visit is sponsored by the Institute for Leadership and Service, a gift through The Olsen-Brandelle North American Indian Art Collection, and the departments of Anthropology, Sociology & Social Welfare, English, Geography, and History.
