Indigenous Forum


Founded in 2010, CSER's Indigenous Forum is the university's first public speaker series on Indigenous studies, politics and the arts. Speakers have included the Honorable Larry Echo Hawk, scholars Dale Turner and Kim Tallbear, poet Luci Tapahonso, visual artist Bunky Echo-Hawk, The 1491s comedy troupe and Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault among others.

CSER continues to be Columbia's main interdisciplinary space for the study of ethnicity and race and their implications for thinking about culture, power, hierarchy, social identities, and political communities. The Center also offers a wide range of public programming, including Artist at the Center, Indigenous Forum, and Latino Public Speaker Series and the Transnational Asian/American Speaker Series. CSER's most recent spaces include the Media and Idea Lab and Gallery at the Center, a space dedicated to curating artistic and thematic exhibits around the Center’s key areas of interest.
