Join us for the Native American Heritage Month book discussion led by Dr. Nicole Carter, Director, Wright State University's Women's Center.  This month's book is "The Beginning and End of Rape: Confronting Sexual Violence in Native America" by Sarah Deer.  

Winner of the Labriola Center American Indian National Book Award.  Despite what major media sources say, violence against Native women is not an epidemic. An epidemic is biological and blameless. Violence against Native women is historical and political, bounded by oppression and colonial violence. This book, like all of Sarah Deer’s work, is aimed at engaging the problem head-on—and ending it.  

If you are wanting to join the discussion, please contact Mia Honaker at mia.honaker@wright.edu as there are a limited number of books available.  You must attend the discussion in order to get a free copy of the book.    

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about all our Native American Heritage Month events and the Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs, please contact us at 937-775-2798, visit our website at www.wright.edu/lana or stop by the center in 154 Millett Hall.
