In honor of Native American Heritage Month, the Brookings Public Library is hosting speakers from across the state and country to discuss Native history, culture, and issues. This event will be on Zoom and streamed live in the Library’s Cooper Room.

This week’s talk is “Violence Against Indigenous Relatives: Settler Colonialism’s Impacts Then & Now” by Taté Walker.

Walker will provide an overview of settler colonialism’s impacts to Indigenous health and wellness. This presentation provides critical context to the violent realities faced by Indigenous communities from cultural, historical, systemic and gender-based viewpoints. Participants will come away with an understanding of the health inequities experienced by Indigenous people due to colonization, as well as strategies to demand and achieve justice for Indigenous communities.
