Indigenous Women

Tues., Nov 19, 2:10-3:30 pm

Thurs., Nov 21, 2:10-3:30 pm

UNH Hamilton Smith, Room 130

Indigenous women are underrepresented on Wikipedia, and you can help. Participants will work with librarians and UNH faculty/staff to increase content about Indigenous women. You don’t need to know anything; you just need to have an interest in learning.

 

Attend one of the Editor Training sessions to learn how to edit on Wikipedia and then come to one (or both!) of the Edit-a-thons where help will be available including resources about Indigenous women. Please bring your own laptop.

 

Wikipedia Editor Training

These two sessions are being offered to help people create editor accounts and learn a few of the basics including how to add a citation.  The trainings, which are open to anyone, will provide a foundation for the Indigenous Women Edit-a-thons.

 

Tuesday, Oct 22, 12:30 – 2:00 p.m., UNH Dimond Library, Room 235

Columbus in His Own Words

Sunday, November 10 at 4 pm

The Waysmeet Center

15 Mill Rd., Durham

The journal of Christopher Columbus in his voyage of 1492 was described by Sir Clements R. Markham as “the most important document in the whole range of the history of geographical discovery, because it is a record of the enterprise which changed the whole face, not only of that history, but of the history of mankind.”

 

What do we celebrate when we celebrate Columbus Day?   What does it mean when we transform Columbus Day into a celebration of Indigenous Peoples?  The journals of Columbus give us a complex view of the first encounter between European civilization and the indigenous cultures across the Atlantic. 

 

Local actors Tracy Cosker, Linette Miles, David Richman, Susan Richman, and Peter Taubman will bring Columbus’s words to life in this dramatic reading.
