November: Native American Heritage Month

This Fall, the Copper Queen Library presents a free series of book
discussions, films, and lectures to celebrate Native American Heritage
Month. The Arizona Humanities Council, the Friends of the Copper
Queen Library and the City of Bisbee are program co-sponsors.

Arizona Humanities Council scholars will lead book discussions and
speak on topics related to Native American heritage, and Monday
night’s “Did You Know? ...” documentary films will also feature films
to complement this series.

The first three programs offer one book discussion and two presentations
by Arizona Humanities Council scholars. On November 1 at 6:30 pm, AHC
Scholar Chris Dietz facilitates discussion of Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions
by authors John Fire Lame Deer and Richard Erdoes.

Then, on November 2, AHC Scholar Allen Dart’s special lecture at 7 pm asks
“What Do We Do With Our Ancestors?” His question will be partially answered
on November 8 at 6:30 pm by San Carlos AHC Scholar Dale Curtis Miles’
presentation, “Apache Culture Kit.”

Two Monday Night “Did You Know? ...” documentary films will round out
programming. On November 6, the featured film is Geronimo and the Apache
Resistance, followed on November 13 by The Pueblo. Both films will be screened
in the Meeting Room at 5:30 pm.

Area residents interested in participating in book discussions may obtain copies
of featured books by visiting the front desk at the Copper Queen Library at any
time preceding discussion dates. A library card is encouraged, but not necessary,
to borrow featured titles and participate in discussions. Residents interested in
viewing films or lectures need only arrive at the scheduled time. Admission to
all events is free.
