Mānoa Campus, George Hall 301 Add to Calendar

The Department of Ethnic Studies, Native Hawaiian Student Services, the Office of Student Equity, Excellence, and Diversity (SEED), Hawaiʻi American Studies Association, and the Afrocentric Society of Hawaiʻi invite you to join and participate in events with Robert Collins that will examine the intersections between Black Studies and Indigenous Studies. Robert Keith Collins is Associate Professor of American Indian Studies in the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University. He holds a BA in Anthropology and a BA in Native American Studies from the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Collins also holds both an MA and PhD in Anthropology from UCLA.

Using a person-centered ethnographic approach, his research explores American Indian cultural changes and African and Native American interactions in North, Central, and South America. This presentation will address themes of race and policy, creative resistance, blended communities, and African-Native lifeways. By examining the relationships between African Americans and Native Americans over the last several centuries, the presentation will help us to understand how these life experiences are a vital part of American society.
