“History Lecture with Dr. Joe Stahlman”

“As the United States approaches its sesquicentennial commemoration we must plan for festivities a little more than 3 years away. As the discussions begin we must address the focal points of presentation. The USA is more diverse than it was during its 200th celebration in 1976. As an Indigenous person working for an Native/Indigenous owned and operated cultural center I have placed considerable thought into this matter. For me, as a descendant of the great
confederacy of the Haudenosaunee, I find myself thinking about the people who pushed for peace in times of war and what that meant on a landscape of violence. In this discussion I will present some personal insight and a few of the opportunities the OCC is considering over the next several years to showcase other historical perspectives.”
