Robert Roche is Director of the American Indian Education Center and principal figure in their four-decade “Camgaign for Dignity,” which calls for the retirement of both the baseball team name, Indians, and its mascot, “Chief Wahoo.” Roche will present a talk that brings a new perspective to questions raised by CIA’s freshman summer reading, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
This event is free and open to the public. Pizza and beverages will be provided.
