Naturalist Book Club

November 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for this month’s book club as we discuss Tsim Schneiders book, The Archaeology of Refuge and Recourse. Schneider is a professor of archaeology at University of California, Santa Cruz and a tribal member of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria.

Excerpt from uapress.arizona.edu:

“The Archaeology of Refuge and Recourse explores the dual practices of refuge and recourse among Indigenous peoples of California. From the eighteenth to the twentieth century, Indigenous Coast Miwok communities in California persisted throughout multiple waves of colonial intrusion. But to what ends?

Applying theories of place and landscape, social memory, and mobility to the analysis of six archaeological sites, Tsim D. Schneider argues for a new direction in the archaeology of colonialism. This book offers insight about the critical and ongoing relationships Indigenous people maintained to their homelands despite colonization and systematic destruction of their cultural sites…”
