Join us for a Skype conversation with Jorge Estevez.
He will present a lecture on indigenous Taino traditions debunking their “extinction.” Following Estevez's presentation there will be a Q&A session.
Estevez is a Museum Program Specialist and Research Assistant at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) and was involved in researching for the NMAI exhibit Taino: Native Heritage and Identity in the Caribbean. He is a Cacique (chief ) of Higuayagua Taino, a group dedicated to all aspects of Taino culture.
This event is free and open to the public, and guest speakers for this program are courtesy of Jesus Macarena-Avila's course "Caribbean Art, Literature and Music" (HUMA 218).
Co-sponsors include the Humanities, History and Social Sciences Department, the Library, and the Office of Academic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Media sponsorship is provided by the Illinois Latino Voice, and graphic design is provided by Iniguez Design Studio.
