The Reese Bullen Gallery in the Art building is hosting an exhibition in early Spring 2013 of collaborative works created by clubs, individuals and artists. The show is loosely inspired by photographer Rick Nahmias' series "Golden States of Grace," which will show concurrently at HSU's First Street Gallery.

Grave Matters: Excavating California’s Buried Past

The Native Pathways Speakers Series presents Tony Platt, author of "Grave Matters: Excavating California’s Buried Past."

"Grave Matters" is the history of the treatment of native remains in California and the story of the complicated relationship between researcher and researched. Tony Platt begins his journey with his son’s funeral at Big Lagoon, a seaside village in pastoral Humboldt County in Northern California, once O-pyúweg, a bustling center for the Yurok and the site of a plundered native cemetery. From there, he travels the globe to answer the following question: How do we reconcile a place of extraordinary beauty with its horrific past?

Grave Matters centers around the Yurok people and the eventual movement to repatriate remains and reclaim ancient rights, but it is also a universal story of coming to terms with the painful legacy of a sorrowful past.

Tony Platt is the author of ten books and more than 150 essays and articles on race, inequality, and social justice, among them "Bloodlines: Recovering Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws," "From Patton’s Trophy to Public Memorial," and "The Child Savers: The Invention of Delinquency," which was reissued as a fortieth-anniversary edition in 2009. Platt, now a professor emeritus, taught at the University of Chicago, the University of California, Berkeley, and California State University, Sacramento, where he received awards for teaching and scholarship. He has been a visiting professor at Chuo University, Tokyo, and at Queen’s University, Belfast, and was a visiting researcher at the Huntington Library and the National Museum of American History. Platt has written for the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle,, the History News Network, Z Magazine, Monthly Review, and the Guardian, and his commentaries have aired on NPR. His publications have been translated into four languages. He lives in Berkeley and Big Lagoon, California.

Presented by Many Tribal Nations, the Department of Native American Studies and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
