Dr. Leo Killsback will give a talk at the Center for Great Plains Studies as the first Paul A. Olson lecture of the semester. He is an associate professor in the Department of Native American Studies at Montana State University who specializes in indigenous governance, traditional law, sovereignty, and treaty rights. Dr. Killsback grew up on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation and is devoted to the preservation and resurgence of Cheyenne language and culture. He sustains relationships within his nation by means of collaborative methodologies that neither exploit nor marginalize.

The Center for Great Plains Studies’ Stubbendieck book prize celebrates the most outstanding work about the Great Plains during the past year, chosen by an independent group of scholars.

This event is free and open to all and will comply with all UNL and Lincoln-Lancaster County COVID-19 guidelines. This talk will be recorded and posted online afterward.

Because of construction and closed crosswalks, visitors to the Great Plains Art Museum should approach the front entrance from the south along 12th Street. The north Que Place stairwell sidewalk is closed at Q street. The corner of 12th and Q streets is closed from the north.
