Virtual Event

Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? If so, please join our virtual book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we will be reading have been written by contemporary Native authors. This month, we will be reading and discussing Oracles: A Novel by Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel (Mohegan). In this futuristic novel from a local Indigenous author, the wilderness is disappearing due to human incursion and urbanization. The Yantuck Indians must find a way to preserve the environment that survives on their eastern United States reservation and yet participate in a global economy. Amid this uncertainty, protagonist Ashneon Quay struggles to find a balance between the traditional and the new and to identify a path that is right for her. Join the virtual conversation hosted by IAIS Staff on Zoom.  

In order to have a more intimate conversation, space is limited. Please visit our website (www.iaismuseum.org) to register through Eventbrite. This is a FREE event, but donations are appreciated.  In order to create a welcoming environment for all participants, this event will NOT be recorded
