Clyde Bellecourt was a major figure in the occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973 and played a founding role in an ongoing Indian School System, Legal Rights Center, and the International Indian Treaty Council. He will deliver a keynote address focusing on issues as Native identity, Indigenous rights, and the history and future of the American Indian Movement as it relates to our Humanity 101 principles: respect, integrity, empathy, forgiveness, compassion, kindness, and self-reflection. This is during American Indian Week at ASU, a student-led, staff supported university-wide celebration. Project Humanities will lead this effort with anticipated support from partners such as the School of Social Transformation, the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, American Indian Policy Institute, Center for Indian Education, etc.
Most recently, Clyde Bellcourt has played a role in advocating for Native American rights during the upcoming election. Hear his impassioned speech during a Black America Forum in Minneapolis in which he questions Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Project Humanities invites all to this free opportunity on Wednesday, April 20th, from [6:00] to 8:30 pm in the Arizona Ballroom at the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus at Arizona State University.
