UW Community Gathers for 15th Annual Samuel E. Kelly Distinguished Faculty Lecture

Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members gathered on Fri., April 12, to attend OMA&D’s 15th annual Samuel E. Kelly Distinguished Faculty Lecture presented by UW Professor Stephanie A. Fryberg in Kane Hall.

Professor Fryberg’s lecture titled “Reclaiming Native Truths: How Stereotypes and Invisibility Shape Bias Towards Native Americans” was a part of the UW’s annual Parent & Family Weekend.

Professor Fryberg, member of the Tulalip Tribes of Washington state, is the William P. and Ruth Gerberding University Professor of American Indian Studies and Psychology. Her lecture examined how both stereotypical representations and the invisibility of contemporary representations (such as educators, politicians and actors) shape non-Native’s beliefs and support for issues affecting Native people, and how we can better work to alleviate contemporary forms of bias against Native people.

At the conclusion of the lecture, Professor Fryberg was presented a framed photo taken by longtime OMA&D staff member and photographer, Emile Pitre.
