This time around we’re talking about the history of segregation and discrimination against native people in Alaska.
Our guest today is Holly Guise, Assistant Professor of History at the University of New Mexico. Her work recovers the untold and unrecorded stories of what life was like for native Americans in Alaska around the period of the Second World War. She’s travelled all around that enormous state to understand this history from native people themselves, to allow them to tell their own stories, even if that comes into conflict with the official history.
You can find more on her work on her Academia.edu profile or on the University of New Mexico website. Also follow her on Twitter @hollyguise
