Brown Bag Book Club

June 17 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

The cover of Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee featuring a portrait of a Native American.Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West by Dee Brown

A clear and disturbing narrative of the destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century told by the ones who experienced it. Brown uses council records, autobiographies and first-hand descriptions from the chiefs and warriors who fought and lived through the battles, massacres and broken treaties. This is the Native perspective on how the west was won—not the one they teach you in school. Purchase your copy in our Four Directions Gift Shop today!

Included in the price of admission: $10 Adults; $8 Seniors; $6 Children; IAIS Members free.
