How to Be an Indian in the 21st Century with author Louis V. Clark III (Two Shoes) at Centennial Hall

Monday, June 19, 2017 - 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Categories: Author/Storyteller

Take a life-long journey, in prose and verse, with Oneida author and poet Louis V. Clark III (Two Shoes), who chronicles his voyage from schoolyard bullies to workplace barriers -- and the loves and lives in between -- to discover "How to Be an Indian in the 21st Century." Warm, plainspoken, and wryly funny, Clark shares his own American Indian story, talking frankly about a culture's struggle to maintain its heritage. Born and raised on the Oneida  Reservation in northeastern Wisconsin, Louis V. Clark III (Two Shoes) turned to poetry to continue the oral tradition of his people, the People of the Standing Stone. A member of the Iroquois Confederacy, his family is of the Bear clan.Co-Sponsored by Boswell Cook Company. Books available for purchase.
