Join us for two talks that put the word "Occupation" back into deep historical perspective, that of indigenous peoples.
Mark Watson is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University. His work explores the relationship of contemporary Native American art, indigenous political philosophy, and globalization. He asks the question: What would it mean to decolonize North America today?
Karen Biestman is the director of the Stanford Native American Cultural Center, a lecturer in Native American Studies/CSRE and the former Stanford Law School assistant dean for student affairs. Biestman previously held administrative and teaching positions at the University of California-Berkeley, where she received both her bachelor's (Native American Studies, 1979) and law (1982) degrees. She asks the question: Who owns culture and to whom does it belong?
