Subject: FILM ON CAMPUS: "HOW THE WEST WAS LOST."

 

 

Dear Students and CEIMSA Readers,

Last night (2 October) about 40 people came on campus to our screening of the very little-known 1993 Discovery Channel TV documentary film, which I happened to get my hands on a couple of years ago. Below is an Internet link to the entire 9 episodes of this series on the conquest of the ‘Indian’ homeland.

It's very political in the military sense of the word, but I think relevant in light of today's militarism and genocidal policies.
