Guest Speaker - Les LaFountain
Campus Center Luckasen Room - Stan Dakken Drive, Mayville, ND
Celebrating Native American Heritage Month - 500 Nations in 500 Years, Diverse People on Common Ground.
Les LaFountain will use the history of the turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa as a basis to share a perspective of pivotal historical events in United States history. This journey begins with the Spanish encounter in 1492 in the Caribbean and continues through to the English experiences at Jamestown (1607) and Plymouth (1620), concluding with Lewis and Clark's American Corps of Discovery exchange in 1804-05. Mr. LaFountain's presentation will criss-cross the world view of indigenous peoples and the newcomers to shed light on complex issues facing contemporary people of North Dakota.
