Common Reading 2021-22: Listen. Learn. Act. Braiding Sweetgrass

A student research guide for learning more about the themes and topics in this year's common reading book. The guide has pages for listen, learn, and act -- each of the themes for the Common Reading.

Titles from Vine Deloria

"In 1969 Vine Deloria, Jr., in his controversial book Custer Died for Your Sins, criticized the anthropological community for its impersonal dissection of living Native American cultures. Twenty-five years later, anthropologists have become more sensitive to Native American concerns, and Indian people have become more active in fighting for accurate representations of their cultures." - Publisher description from Indians and Anthropologists

Books on Indigenous Research Methods

"Deloria’s critique of the social sciences and especially anthropology as disciplines that suppressed or denied Native interests under the guise of academic objectivity contributed to the creation of Native American and Indigenous Studies during the late-1960s and early ’70s as a field that explicitly centered Native voices."
