Since the United Nations’ declaration of the “Year of Indigenous Peoples” in 1993, indigenous movements across the Americas and the Southern Hemisphere have focused largely on anxiety over the impact of unchecked developmentalism on indigenous populations. In a talk, University of Miami scholar Tracy Guzmán argues that current debates about the steep ecological price of capitalist modernization began long ago in Native communities, where ideas of ancestry and progress often conflict with one another. A reception follows the talk. Room 305, Pembroke Hall, 172 Meeting Street.
