The HES PTA is pleased to facilitate a discussion about An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, the latest selection of the HES Equity Committee.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 18, immediately following the PTA General Meeting, to discuss this “meticulously documented…thought-provoking treatise” and 2015 American Book Award-winner. If you are interested in joining us but cannot purchase your own copy, let us know. We don’t want that to prevent you from sharing your perspective on this or any other title in our series.
