Christine Quintasket: A Cultural Activist on the Columbia Plateau

Join Professor Laurie Arnold, director of Gonzaga University’s Native American Studies program, for a talk about Christine Quintasket, author, cultural activist and public intellectual. A member of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Quintasket is best known as an author, published under the pen name Mourning Dove, but her life’s work also included cultural preservation and political leadership, as well as caring for her family and her community. Our conversation will celebrate the many aspects of this Colville woman navigating a complex new 20th century.
