Hippies and Indians: The New Mexico Story
January 30, 2013 at 12 noon to 1p.m. at the Texana Room, DeGolyer Library, 6404 Hyer (formerly Hilltop) Lane & McFarlin Blvd.
A lecture by Sherry L. Smith, Southern Methodist University Distinguished Professor of History and Associate Director of the Clements Center for Southwest Studies.
Part of the Brown Bag Lecture Series.
Professor Smith will speak about how the Indian and “hippie” counterculture alliance of the 1960s played out in northern New Mexico. This lecture focuses on only one part of her newly published monograph, Hippies, Indians, and the Fight for Red Power (Oxford, 2012) which examines the role of Indians and non-Indians in important political events of the Red Power movement, such as the Pacific Northwest Fish-ins and the Occupation of Wounded Knee, and features pop culture icons such as Marlon Brando and Buffy Sainte-Marie.
Pack a brown bag lunch (not required) and join us for what promises to be a fascinating lecture by celebrated Western historian Sherry Lynn Smith!
