In honor of Native American Heritage Month, Jasmine Anderson presents “The Role of Women in Native American Culture". Anderson descended from the Pamunkey Tribe of Virginia and the Mohawk Nation of Canada. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia and will soon be pursuing a law degree to better serve Indian country. In addition to interpreting Native American life from 1600 to the 1800s, Anderson is an indigenous artist who makes beadwork and regalia for Native peoples of the Americas.
The lecturer’s program will focus on Native American women pre- and post colonization. During the presentation, the speaker will discuss the roles Native women had—and have tried to maintain in modern day—and how these roles shaped Natives in the United States, particularly in Virginia. Anderson’s Native American garb and items specific to the Native American culture are sure to enhance her informative program.
