Monday Evening Book
Monday, Jan. 18, 7:00 PM

In January, the Monday Evening Book Club will be discussing The Mountains Sing by Phan Que Mai Nguyen. The Mountains Sing tells an enveloping, multigenerational tale of the Tran family, set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War. Vivid, gripping, and steeped in the language and traditions of Vietnam, The Mountains Sing brings to life the human costs of this conflict from the point of view of the Vietnamese people themselves, while showing us the true power of kindness and hope.

Tuesday, Jan. 19, 1:00 PM
Around 9,000 years ago a Native American community buried one of their own near a river in the Pacific Northwest of North America. Then, in 1996, after millennia of erosion the remains of this individual, now known as The Ancient One (also Kennewick Man), were found by locals along the banks of the Columbia River near Kennewick, Washington, setting in motion a more than two-decades-long legal and cultural battle between Native Americans, anthropologists, and the United States Government, sparking conversations within the country about cultural ownership, scientific intentions, and Native American rights.
 
Join us for a talk and Q&A with anthropologist and archaeologist Martin Walker to better understand this conflict over the control of human remains, to learn about NAGPRA (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act), and to discover how this singular case has brought into sharp relief Native American sovereignty in the United States. 
 
Martin Walker, MA, RPA, is an anthropologist and professional archaeologist who has been conducting research and teaching North American Prehistoric archaeology for over 10 years. He has worked with the American Museum of Natural History, the University of Tennessee, the University of West Georgia, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, and the National Parks Service.
