About This Event

Join us for an evening with Samuel B. Torres (Mexica/Nahua), Ed.D., Director of Research and Programs at the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition and author of Beyond Colonizing Epistemicides: Toward a Decolonizing Framework for Indigenous Education [dissertation and forthcoming book].

In this session, Dr. Torres will examine the damaging effects of superficial efforts at social justice, anti-racism, and decolonization. In contrast to this casual, trendy attitude, he will lead us instead in interrogating the impact of performative allyship and re-situating the role of dissidence in liberation-oriented solidarity efforts.
