In Our History Is the Future, Nick Estes traces traditions of Indigenous resistance that led to the #NoDAPL movement. Our History Is the Future is at once a work of history, a manifesto, and an intergenerational story of resistance.
Nick Estes is a citizen of the Kul Wicasa Oyate (Lower Brule Sioux Tribe). He currently lives in Minneapolis, MN and works on several projects, including podcasts and publications through Red Media. This fall he joined the faculty of the American Indian Studies Department at the University of Minnesota.
This event is made possible by a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council.
