Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Native American Speaker and Performance Series

Smithsonian Curator keynotes UNCA American Indian series

UNC Asheville's Native American Speaker and Performance Series includes a Cherokee stickball demonstration and talks by Native American leaders.  All events in the series are free and open to the public.

American Indian politics

Paul Chaat Smith, a Comanche author, essayist and curatorwill deliver the series keynote address at 12:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20 in UNC Asheville’s Highsmith University Union, Alumni Hall. Smith will discuss the contemporary landscape of American Indian politics and culture.

Smith is associate curator at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. His collection of essays, Everything You Know About Indians Is Wrong (University of Minnesota, 2009), examines the ways Indian stereotypes infiltrate culture. He is also co-author of Like a Hurricane: the Indian Movement from Alcatraz to Wounded Knee (New Press, 1996), a standard text in American Indian studies and American history courses.

Stickball

UNC Asheville will also host a Cherokee stickball demonstration by members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5 on the UNC Asheville Intramural Fields. Stickball, which is similar to lacrosse, began as a way for tribes to settle disputes without going to war. The Asheville Youth Lacrosse league will follow with another demonstration to illustrate the historical link between the two games.

Chief's leadership model

Chad Smith (no relation to Paul Chaat Smith), the former principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, will give a presentation discussing the principle-based leadership organization and "Point A to Point B" leadership model used during his tenure. His talk takes place at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12 in the Sherrill Center, Mission Health Mountain View Room.

The Native American Speaker & Performance Series is co-sponsored by many UNC Asheville programs and offices: the Office of the Associate Provost, the Department of Education, the American Indian Outreach Program, the Arts & Ideas Program, the Humanities Program, the NEH Distinguished Professor, and Cultural Events & Special Academic Programs.
