This unique lecture series offers the public an Indigenous perspective on a different subject of interest each quarter. By engaging with Pueblo partners and Native leaders, the IPCC presents our communities’ stories in our own words and voices.


Our June theme is The Importance of Indigenous Narratives.

Living in a time of increasing globalization and new media, we’ll take a look at how indigenous narratives are used to create cultural awareness and preserve language and history, serving as a means of resistance and decolonization.

Panelists will include Dr. Lee Francis, CEO/Publisher at Native Realities Press.
