Environmental injustice is an ongoing threat to indigenous peoples globally as their lands are stripped for mining, logging, farming, ranching and storage of spent nuclear fuels. The Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club welcomes Dr. Laurie Weinstein, Professor Emerita of Anthropology at Western Connecticut State University, for a presentation about North American indigenous peoples’ fight for justice on their own lands. Dr. Weinstein is author and editor of many books on Native Americans, women and the U.S. military, and is working with Dr. Lucianne Lavin on their forthcoming book Between Two Rivers and Two Wars: Native People in Western New England in the 18th Century.
