David Treuer: 
Native Americans and the Imagination

What Indian life on a reservation is like often escapes notice. In the place of a deep or contextual understanding of the forces at play, there exist misconceptions and fantasies. For Indians, there is a large gap between what is and what is imagined. Treuer will discuss how to imagine and learn oneself beyond the curtain of fiction that obscures Indian life.
