Alyssa Mt. Pleasant: Roadside Markers in Haudenosaunee Homelands

  • Houghton House - 112 1 Kings Lane Geneva, NY 14456 United States (map)

This talk, by Dr. Alyssa Mt. Pleasant, Assistant Professor in the Department of Transnational Studies at the University of Buffalo takes up public history of Haudenosaunee people through the lens of roadside historical mark-ers and considers how these markers shape narratives of violence and dispossession, contributing to “replacement” narratives that engender Haudenosaunee erasure and fuel anti-Indian rhetoric.
