Linda Jerofke, Ph.D.
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Linda Jerofke, Ph.D., professor of anthropology, will address a complex shift in identity and sovereignty in Oregon during the next colloquium at EOU Thursday, Jan. 22.
Jerofke’s presentation, “Assimilation: A Story of the Early Tribal Reservation Period of Oregon,” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception will follow. A live stream will also be available.
The early reservation period of Oregon was a time of dramatic culture change due to the intersection of the United States Government, settlers and Native American tribes. Using information gained from primary documents dating from 1850-1925, Jerofke asks what really happened to the Oregon tribes during this time and how did they cope with the changes, including the advent of reservations and boarding schools.
