Glenabah Martinez, author and an associate professor in UNM's Department of Language, Literacy and Sociocultural Studies, will discuss and sign copies of her latest book, "Native Pride: The Politics of Curriculum and Instruction in an Urban Public School," on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 1 p.m. at the UNM Bookstore. The event is free and open to the public.
Native Pride examines the daily experiences of Indigenous youth in an urban public high school in the Southwest. The issues raised by the students are examined within the context of this history of colonization in the Southwest and contemporary racial and cultural tensions in the city. Martinez' research concentrates on issues directly related to the schooling experiences of Indigenous youth, and the politics of social studies knowledge.
