Southern University Law Center recognizes American Heritage Month with seminar titled “Left Out: A Brief Survey of American Indian History.”
November is Native American Heritage Month, and in celebration, Southern University Law Center will host a seminar titled “Left Out: A Brief Survey of American Indian History” taking place on Friday, November 5th from 12 p.m.- 2 p.m. Law Center Associate Professor Michael D. O. Rusco will make the presentation, which will focus on common misconceptions about tribal society prior to European contact.
"With this seminar, I'm hoping to pull the curtain back from the accomplishments of North American tribes in mathematics, astronomy, genetics, engineering, and forest management," said Rusco. Professor Rusco will also discuss more modern history including the federal Indian policy periods and contemporary tribal sovereignty.
The Law Center has continuously fostered relationships with recognized tribal communities and businesses across Louisiana and surrounding states through the Native American Law and Policy Institute. The institute offers a federal Indian law course and a host of seminars and conferences, advocating for the progress of tribal communities.
The seminar is open to the public. It will be offered via ZOOM.
Registration is required and can be completed at sulc.edu/leftout. For more information, contact Professor Micheal D. O. Rusco at email@example.com.RSS News Feed
