"Trudell" Added to Monday Schedule

Throughout November, The Copper Queen Library offers programming to
celebrate Native American Heritage Month. On November 13, The Monday
Night "Did You Know" Documentary Film Series line-up will be enhanced
by the addition of a new Heather Rae documentary, Trudell, to the schedule.

In 1979, while protesting the US government's policy regarding Native Americans,
John Trudell burned an American flag on the steps of FBI headquarters in
Washington, DC. Within a matter of hours, his pregnant wife, three children,
and mother-in-law were killed in a suspicious fire on a Nevada reservation.

This ended his role in the movement, but did not silence his voice. Hear his
story at 5:30pm in the Copper Queen Library Meeting Room.
