Public Lecture: "Intellectual Health in the AIDS Journals of David Warrior," on Thurs., March 28, 3-4:30 pm, in the UHM English Department, KUY 410

David Warrior (Osage) died of AIDS-related pneumocystis in San Francisco in September, 1992. Not long before he died, as a student at SFSU, David kept a journal addressing his circumstances as a gay American Indian man facing the reality of AIDS in the early '90s. In this lecture, his younger brother discusses these journals in public for the first time and considers how David Warrior’s writings contribute to emerging frameworks of Indigenous intellectual history and to an emerging agenda in Indigenous intellectual health.
