Abstract

Cornel is professor and director of Indigenous Nations Studies at PSU, whose research explores issues of Native American identity, decolonization, reconstruction of sovereign nations and indigenous urban and reservation-based teacher education. A musician and singer, he won Musical Artist of the Year from the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers and the Phoenix Award from the Lawrence (Kansas) Arts Commission. His talk, “Walk a Mile in My Red Face” is a provocative exploration and narration of the “microaggressions” natives face and overcome, from demeaning team mascots to misunderstandings of tribal customs and governance.
