Prof. David Stirrup hosts an opportunity to learn about contemporary Indigenous issues in Canada and the USA.
An exhibition of posters highlights the topics, from anti-pipeline protests to cultural appropriation, alongside Scotland’s long historical ties with Indigenous communities, from WWI soldiers to Cherokee Chiefs. Native North American speakers will join academics from the Beyond the Spectacle project and Scottish universities to answer questions inspired by the exhibit.
Suitable for all ages and all levels of interest and prior knowledge.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Beyond the Spectacle: Native North American Presence in Britain are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
