Bill’s Backstage Bar, Deadwood Mountain Grand, In the Moment Book Club with Lori Walsh 

Nick Estes -- Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance. Estes is a citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe and an Assistant Professor in the American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico. 

“Our History Is The Future points a way forward, with solidarity and without sentimentality, to an idea of Indigenous land alive with ancestry and renewal. Standing Rock is the model for the present, bound to the past, to reckon with the future.” -- NPR 

Megan Phelps-Roper -- Unfollow: A Journey from Hatred to Hope, Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church 

Raised in a church infamous for protesting members of the LGBT community, Jews, the military and countless others, Phelps-Roper became an advocate for people and ideas she was taught to despise. 

Saturday, October 6, 5pm, Deadwood Mountain Grand Conference Room 

American Masters Words From a Bear -N. Scott Momaday Film Preview & Discussion with Jill Momaday 

A fresh, cinematic approach to biographical storytelling, this story takes audiences on a spiritual journey through the expansive landscapes of the West, when Momaday’s Kiowa ancestry roamed the Great Plains with herds of buffalo, to the sand-painted valleys of Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico where his imagination ripened and he showed superior writing skills as a young mission student. Explores Momaday’s place as the founding member of the “Native American Renaissance” in art and literature. 

Jill Momaday is a mother, actor, writer and filmmaker whose film, Return to Rainy Mountain, documents her Kiowa heritage and life in the arts as the daughter of Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday. She is also the family advisor and archivist for the PBS American Masters episode featuring her father.
