‘Drums’ Author Nicholas Peroff Presents
Public Lectures at CMN March 20 and 21

 

Dr. Nicholas Peroff

Dr. Nicholas Peroff is well known on the Menominee Reservation and across Indian Country as the author of the respected book “Menominee Drums: Tribal Termination and Restoration 1954-1974.” He visits the College of Menominee Nation for public presentations to be held Wednesday, March 20, and Thursday, March 21. Both programs are free and take place in the Campus Commons.

 

From 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dr. Peroff will be joined by community elder Elaine Peters, Menominee Tribal Enterprise Chief Operating Officer Larry Waukau, and Sustainable Development Institute Director Chris Caldwell. The group and those attending the presentation will share stories about the tribe’s termination/restoration era, the log mill and forest that were such key elements in Federal efforts to end tribal status, and how the Menominee worked to win back their reservation and Federal recognition of the tribe’s status as a sovereign nation.

 

From 1 to 3 o’clock on Thursday, Dr. Peroff will meet with faculty, staff and students of the College and others who are interested to discuss his research with the Menominee People. The talk will include issues that scholars and students may encounter when operating within reservation lands or with tribal governing bodies, grassroots organizations or individuals. The Thursday program will be broadcast to the CMN Green Bay/Oneida campus for the convenience of students and others who wish to view it at that location.

 

A private foundation makes it possible for CMN to award copies of Dr. Peroff’s esteemed book on the Menominee termination/restoration era to the first 20 attendees at each of the two programs.
