Guerrilla History

May 21, 2021

In this episode of Guerrilla History, we bring on professor, activist, and author Nick Estes to talk to us about the long history of American indigenous resistance.  The conversation is structured around Nick's brilliant book Our History Is the Future:  Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.

Nick Estes is a citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe. He's also an Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of New Mexico, an organizer with The Red Nation, and author of the aforementioned Our History Is the Future, which is available from Verso Books:  You can find The Red Nation via their website and on twitter @The_Red_Nation.
