Pipestone National Monument Guest Speaker Series

Pipestone National Monument announces the second of its 2018’s Guest Speaker Series at the Pipestone National Monument Visitor Center in Pipestone, Minnesota, on Friday, May 25, from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Wynema Morris’ presentation is titled "Sacred Place, Sacred Space: The Absent Narrative of American Indians” and will provide information on the importance of listening to the other side of the story in order to learn from rather than about American Indians. American Indian world views and relationships with spatial environs will be discussed specifically as they relate to the Pipestone Quarry.  If you enjoyed any of the previous guest speaker events, please join us again. The event is free and open to the general public.

Wynema Morris, M.A., has taught at the Nebraska Indian Community College in Macy, Nebraska for nine years and serves on the Board of Directors. She is also an enrolled member of the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska. Wynema Morris’ area of expertise is Native American Studies with a focus on Omaha tribal history, government, culture, tradition, Native American philosophy, and U.S.-American Indian relations. Since 1991 she has been an Associate Fellow for the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. She is a former member of the Omaha Tribal Council and was Chief of Tribal Operations. Ms. Morris is currently writing a book on her mother’s experiences at the Genoa Indian School, Genoa, Nebraska. The school operated from 1884 to 1933.
