The Gadugi Program hosted Cherokee High School/Appalachian State University Scholars on Thursday, February 2, 2017. The group enjoyed dinner and attended Dr. Edward Westermann's lecture "Hitler’s Ostkrieg and the Indian Wars: Comparing Genocide and Conquest."
Gadugi scholars had the opportunity to meet Dr. Westermann after the lecture and speak with him about:
- American Indian history
- Issues of comparative history
- Challenges of taking on controversial issues such as genocide and conquest.
Dr. Westermann has offered to send each Gadugi student a signed copy of his work!
Very special thanks to Dr. Nancy Love of the Humanities Council for the invitation, and to Mr. Heath Robertson for providing transportation for our students.
