HOUGHTON -- Nick Estes, a historian and indigenous rights activist from the Oceti Sakowin (The Great Sioux Nation), will present "Resistance beyond Party Politics: From Standing Rock, to Black Lives Matter, to Palestine" at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, in Michigan Tech's Alumni Lounge, Memorial Union Building. He is presently an American Democracy Fellow at Harvard University.

Estes is also a co-founder of The Red Nation, a coalition of Native and non-Native activists, educators, students, and community organizers advocating Native liberation. According to their mission statement, they seek "to address the marginalization and invisibility of Native struggles within mainstream social justice organizing, and to foreground the targeted destruction and violence towards Native life and land."*
