KNPR segment that aired on September 11, 2020:
This panel is a conversation between accomplished Native American activist artists about the role of oral history in their work. Both Jean LaMarr (Northern Paiute and Achomawi) and Jack Malotte (Western Shoshone and Washoe) have worked in multiple media, including printmaking, painting, pen and ink, and public murals, and they have been lifelong activists in service of their communities. Among the themes their art engages with are militarization, Native activism, treaty rights, environmental justice, kinship and tradition, and protecting sacred sites. In this conversation, Southern Paiute artist Fawn Douglas talks with both LaMarr and Malotte about the role and importance of oral history in Native communities in Nevada and beyond, and how they have drawn on it in their art and their activism.
Dr. Suzi Resnik, the 2017 SOHA Mink Award recipient, has recently made a generous donation to SOHA in honor of Rob Ray and Tensia Trejo. SOHA thanks Suzi and celebrates oral historians Rob and Tensia in our SOHA 2020 Virtual Conference Program.Continue reading “Suzi Resnik Makes Donation to SOHA in Honor of Tensia Moriel Trejo and Rob Ray”
Join the #SOHA2020 Virtual Conference to attend the keynote talk with Dr. Alex Aviña. His talk, “Killing Machine: How Mexican and U.S. States of Exception Turned Revolutionaries and Migrants into Bare Life, 1969-1996,” will be held via Zoom on Saturday, September 12 from 1:50 pm to 2:50 pm Pacific Time. Thanks to our co-sponsors UNLV Department of History and UNLV Department of Interdisciplinary, Gender, and Ethnic Studies in the College of Liberal Arts.
Dr. Alexander Aviña is an associate professor of history and director of Undergraduate Studies for the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. Dr. Aviña is an academic expert in how the foundations of colonialism, indigenous genocide, empire building, guerilla movements, and configurations of violence have greatly influenced North American histories. Much of his previous work has focused on the oral histories of peasant guerilla, counterinsurgency, and social justice movements in working class and rural Mexico.
His current work interests are documenting the firsthand accounts of the political and socioeconomic factors in Mexican drug wars and state violence in 1960’s and 1970’s. He is also well qualified to discuss Central and South American migrations, political movements, inclusive historical pedagogies, and public/private memories of violence and war. He is an excellent plenary speaker and addition to any conference panel given his broad areas of expertise, oral history experiences and work, interdisciplinary appeal, and personal migration background. His work and insights have been sought by CNN, PBS, Arizona News, various historical podcasts, KJZZ and his book Specters of Revolution was awarded the María Elena Martínez Mexican History Book Prize in 2014.
