Indigenous Peoples Day

Indigenous Peoples’ day is October 11th, 2021

Did you know that Arizona is home to 22 federally recognized tribes? Many states and major cities have opted to celebrate the Indigenous (originating or occurring naturally in a particular place; Native) peoples’ of the United States instead of Columbus day.

The article, “Indigenous Peoples Day comes amid a reckoning over colonialism and calls for return of Native land“ is available through our Opposing Viewpoints database.

Gomez (2021) writes, “as Indigenous peoples the world over continue to defend ancestral lands, Indigenous Peoples Day can have important meaning, more than just the renaming of a national holiday. It is an invitation to contend with the impacts of colonialism and the wrongful appropriation of Indigenous lands”.

We also have a great collection of Native authored works and movies. Including the movies: Smoke Signals, The Business of Fancy Dancing, The Cherokee Word for Water, and Rhymes for Young Ghouls. Some Native authored works include: There There, The Only Good Indians, PostColonial Love Poem, and Red: A Haida Manga.

We have also created a libguide for November which is Native American Heritage month that highlights many of the resources we have available across our libraries.

West Campus Library Brownbag Speaker

Each year, libraries across the country spotlight questions of intellectual freedom and censorship with events and displays for Banned Books Week. Many people are unaware that books are regularly challenged or banned from libraries, schools, and bookstores. In the Spring of 2020, Amazon briefly banned the sale of Hitler's anti-Semitic propaganda title, Mein Kampf, anywhere on their platform before reintroducing the title for sale in a limited way months later. The book was banned in post-war Germany until 2016 when a heavily annotated version was published there. Professor Carl-Michal Krawczyk will help us to frame the polarizing discussion around Mein Kampf. We will consider history, context, and the power of the written word during this lunchtime presentation and discussion.

Speaker: Professor Carl-Michal Krawczyk

Date: Tuesday November 9

Time: 11:30am-1:00pm

Location: West Campus Library Classroom 

Bring your lunch and your curiosity!
