- Memorialization & Justice as an Ancestral Imperative: Two American Cases
- The role of orally transmitted ancestral memory in ongoing struggles to overcome past injustices is proving critical in the struggle for human rights, civil rights and justice. In this context, the presentation reflects on two path-breaking cases of recent public memorialization: the Moiwana Massacre, which took place in the Republic of Suriname, South America and the Sand Creek Massacre in Colorado.
