Reading the truth in historic photographs of Native Americans

Fort Lewis College professor Dr. Andrew Gulliford will present an image-rich lecture on how to “read” historic photos of Native Americans and how to interpret photographic “truth” in a lecture this Saturday from 3-4:15 p.m. at the Ruby Sisson Library. 

Gulliford will also discuss the meaning and importance of the book “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,” now published in an illustrated edition.  For the new edition, Gulliford served as one of the consultants on the photographs, artwork and captions.

Directly following the lecture, Gulliford will offer a short book-signing session. Copies of the new illustrated version of “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” will be available for purchase on site through Maria’s Book Store for roughly $44 (cash or check).

“Interpreting Historic Photographs of Native Americans” by Dr. Gulliford is a free Lifelong Learning lecture, open to the public, and hosted by the Ruby Sisson Library, located at the corner of U.S. 160 and South 8th Street.
