The Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara will host Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz in a free talk, titled Continental Imperialism and the U.S. Way of War, at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29, at 1535 Santa Barbara St.

Dunbar-Ortiz is professor emerita in ethnic studies at Cal State East Bay and author of An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, recipient of the 2015 American Book Award.

The event will be a community gathering around the genocide of indigenous peoples, collective trauma and possibilities for healing.

“From earliest British American settlements in the 1600s, to the adhesion of the 13 British colonies into an independent nation-state, and up to the present, the military has been the engine of United States development and the production and sustaining factor of U.S. patriotism," Dunbar-Ortiz said.

"Yet, generations have had little knowledge of and interaction with the military; it is nearly invisible in everyday life,” she said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
