The Fettuccine Forum presents: “History, Healing and Re-story-ation” feat. Darren Parry
November 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm MDT
Darren Parry is the author of “The Bear River Massacre: A Shoshone History”, and teaches Native American History at Utah State University. His lecture “History, Healing and Re-story-ation” will explore how the Bear River Massacre was a defining moment for the Northwestern band of the Shoshone Nation, and how the massacre did not trap the Shoshone people in death but offered them a chance of rebirth. Parry states: “My message is one of hope and of peace in the face of violence. What emerges from the margins of these stories is a poignant reminder of the resilience of a people.”
The former Chairman of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, Parry currently serves on the Board of Directors for the American West Heritage Center, in Wellsville, Utah, and also on the Utah Humanities Board and the PBS Utah Board of Directors. Parry attended the University of Utah and Weber State University, receiving his bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education, with an emphasis in History.
