The U.S. war on terror is often called the “longest war.” This talk — the first in a series of Fall 2021 Working Group Seminars presented by the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative at Princeton (NAISIP) — reconsiders two decades of terror wars as a continuation of the Indian wars by examining the criminalization of Indigenous resistance and the present danger of climate.

Nick Estes, a citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, is an assistant professor in the American studies department at the University of New Mexico. He is the author of Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance and a co-founder of The Red Nation, an Indigenous resistance organization.

The event is open to members of the University community. Pre-registration is required, and in-person attendance will be capped at 20 participants. Registrations will be confirmed via email on a first come, first served basis. Registrants must be confirmed to attend.
