FARGO — The Fargo Public Library in partnership with the Indigenous Association plans to host a panel discussion at City Hall Tuesday, Sept. 28, on American Indian boarding schools.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m. in the City Commission Chambers and can be attended in-person or online. The online discussion can be viewed on the Fargo Public Library Facebook page.
Panelists Joseph McNeil, Karen Van Fossan and Hollie Mackay will discuss "how federal policy and religious doctrine have served to advance religion as an expression of free market capitalism at the expense of Indigenous communities in the United States," according to an event announcement.
The event is part of the 2021 One Book, One Community reading project event series, which is supported by MN Legacy Fund through Lake Agassiz Regional Library, Friends of the Fargo Public Library, Friends of the West Fargo Public Library, Friends of the Moorhead Library, Concordia College Cultural Events and Moorhead Community Education.
All Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Adults must accompany children ages 9 and younger. For more information on the Fargo Public Library, call 701-241-1472 or visit www.fargolibrary.org.
