This weekend we had the pleasure of attending “Sovereignty Expanded, Indigenous Geographies of the Contemporary American West”, at Pitzer College. Elizabeth Kahn spoke on a panel called “Narratives of Sovereignty” along with Terria Smith and Pamela Peters. We then experienced Hans Baumann’s exhibit: 5 Distillations (Salton Sea) at the Lezner Family Art Gallery on campus. We are grateful for both Hans Baumann and Pitzer College for inviting us to participate in this important conference.
