Elizabeth Cook-Lynn will present a lecture entitled "The Colonial Relationship Between the U.S. and Native Nations" as part of the Native Pathways Speaker Series.
Elizabeth, a member of the Crow Creek Sioux tribe, was born in 1930 in Fort Thompson, South Dakota, and raised on the reservation. She is Professor Emerita of English and Native American Studies at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington. She comes from a family of Sioux politicians - her father and grandfather served on the Crow Creek Sioux Tribal Council for many years - and from Native scholars. Her grandmother was a bilingual writer for early Christian-oriented newspapers at Sisseton, SD, and a great-grandfather, Gabriel Renville, was a Native linguist instrumental in developing early Dacotah language dictionaries.
Elizabeth did her undergraduate work at South Dakota State College (now South Dakota State University) in English and Journalism, graduating with a BA in English and journalism in 1952. She studied at New Mexico State University in 1966 and at Black Hills State College in 1968. She obtained her Masters of Education from the University of South Dakota in Education, Psychology and Counseling in 1971. She was in a doctoral program at the University of Nebraska in 1977-78 and was a National Endowment for the Humanities fellow at Stanford University in 1976.
Since her retirement, Elizabeth has served as a writer-in-residence at universities around the country. In the fall of 1993, she and N. Scott Momaday held a workshop at South Dakota State University for Sioux writers. From this workshop came a journal, Woyake Kinikiya: A Tribal Model Literary Journal, introduced by six of Elizabeth's poems.
For her own writing, she believes that "Writing is an essential act of survival for contemporary American Indians." Her writing and teaching centers on the "cultural, historical, and political survival of Indian Nations." She also says, "The final responsibility of a writer like me . . . is to commit something to paper in the modern world which supports this inexhaustible legacy left by our ancestors." Besides the books and anthologies listed below, her work has been published in numerous journals, including Prairie Schooner, South Dakota Review, Sun Tracks, Pembroke, Greenfield Review, Ethnic Studies Review. American Indian Quarterly, CCCCand Wicazo Sa Review.
This presentation is sponsored by the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of Native American Studies.
