Description

Indigenous Education Network 30th Anniversary Lecture Series

Trans-Indigenous Futures: Oceanic Seafaring in the Great Lakes and Great Plains

A talk by Vicente M. Diaz

Moderated by Sandi Wemigwase

Vicente M. Diaz (Carolinian Pohnpeian/Filipino) teaches comparative indigenous studies in the Department of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. He directs the Native Canoe Program, which uses traditional water craft and indigenous water-based ecological knowledge for teaching and engaged-research with Minnesota's indigenous communities. Diaz is a founding figure in critical Pacific Islands studies and a leader in ongoing efforts to build global, comparative Native Studies. His work explores the intersections of critical theory, indigenous resurgence, cultural and indigenous knowledge revitalization, and new media for decolonial and anticolonial practice. His major work are Repositioning the Missionary: Rewriting the Histories of Native Catholicism, Colonialism and Indigeneity in Guam (University of Hawaii Press, 2010), "Native Pacific Cultural Studies on the Edge," co-edited with J. Kehaulani Kauanui, special issue of The Contemporary Pacific (2001), and Sacred Vessels: Navigating Tradition and Identity in Micronesia (1996, 29 mins).

Placental Politics: CHamoru Women Protecting the Sacred Against U.S. Militarism in Guåhan

A talk by Christine Taitano DeLisle

Moderated by Nicole Ineese-Nash

Tina Taitano DeLisle is Associate Professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Her research and teaching interests focus on the intersections of colonialism, militarism, gender, and Indigeneity in Oceania, particularly in her home-island in the Marianas (Micronesia). DeLisle’s book, Placental Politics: CHamoru Women, White Womanhood and Indigeneity Under U.S. Colonialism in Guam (forthcoming, UNC Press) examines the historical and cultural work of CHamoru women in relation to white American navy wives during the early 20th century U.S. colonial administration of the island. DeLisle has published in leading journals in Pacific history, gender & sexuality, American studies, and critical Indigenous studies. She is currently involved in environmental stewardship projects between Dakota and Micronesians in Minneapolis and CHamoru women's community projects in Guåhan. In addition to curating several exhibits on Micronesia, she has worked with Chicago’s Field Museum on the display and use of a traditional 19th century Māori (Ngāti Porou) wharenui/meeting house and was also involved in the initial planning stages of the Guam Museum. Her second book project examines the relations between museums, national parks, and Indigenous land struggles in Micronesia.
