Hear a fascinating presentation by Dr. Justin de Leon.
“Dr Justin de Leon is a professor with the Ethnic Studies department at UC San Diego, he specialized in Critical Theory and Feminist Theory with a focus on Native American experiences. At UCSD, he teaches courses on cultural worldviews of Indigenous America and global Indigenous thought. His research looks at how Native self-affirmative cultural practices of spirituality and tradition act as a way to achieve stable personhood. De Leon works specifically with the Lakota Sioux of North and South Dakota. Justin is a Rotary World Peace Fellow and his most recent film collaboration, More than A Word, is about the negative use of mascots in American sports.”
