LaDonna Harris' papers and the records of Americans for Indian Opportunity are housed at the Center for Southwest Research in Zimmerman Library. Sherry is introduced by Beth Silbergleit from CSWR and Dennis Trujillo from the Office of the State Historian. Harris attended the talk and reflects on Sherry's examination of her life's work.
