Wednesday, January 23 at 7:00 p.m.— Following a program about the Bears Ears region, Stephen Strom will be signing copies of his new books, Voices from Bears Ears and Bears Ears: Views from a Sacred Land at the Center for English as a Second Language (1013 E University Blvd) on the University of Arizona campus. This program honors a recent gift of Native American art from Stephen Strom, in memory of his late wife, Karen. Dr. Strom will speak about his latest project documenting the southern Utah region known as Bears Ears. Keynote speaker, Carleton Bowekaty, a member of the Pueblo of Zuni Tribal Council and the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition, will share experiences of the coalition as it advocated for the establishment of Bears Ears National Monument in 2015/16, and how it is responding to the monument’s subsequent downsizing in 2017.
A reception will follow the program, during which selections from the Strom Collection will be on display, and Dr. Strom will sign copies of his books. This program is free, and it will be located in room 103 of the Center of English as a Second Language (CESL). CESL is one building east of the Arizona State Museum North. Garage parking is available at Euclid Ave and Second St or Tyndall Ave and Fourth St. For more information, visit the Arizona State Museum website.
