Sealaska Heritage Institute's lunchtime lecture series continues this week, with "Un-silencing the Past: Reassessing American Military Relations with the Tlingit in 1869." Led by SHI Archivist Zachary Jones, also an adjunct instructor of history at UAS, the lecture will focus on American military relations with the Tlingit in 1869, a violent year in Southeast Alaska. Numerous conflicts between the Army and the Tlingit occurred at that time, most notably those at Sitka, Kake and Wrangell. Jones will discuss how a reassessment of these events with application of Tlingit oral record has transformed what we can now learn about the conflicts.
The lecture is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15, at Sealaska Plaza in the boardroom on the 4th floor. It's free and open to the public.
