P&P Live! Dana Gluckstein — DIGNITY - with Tarah Demant & Pam Kingfisher

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 15, 2020 - 3:00pm

The updated edition of Dana Gluckstein’s iconic book, DIGNITY: In Honor of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, provides urgency and a contemporary focus to the worldwide movement against racial injustice in which DIGNITY continues to play an important part. It includes new images of Native Americans and Moroccan Berbers as well as a new epilogue from Amnesty International, “Freedom from Violence” calling for the United States to take action against rape and assault of Native American and Alaskan Native women.

The first edition of DIGNITY, a three-time winner of the International Photography Awards, helped create a turning point for the Obama administration to adopt the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples – a historic milestone – in association with Amnesty International for their 50th anniversary. Gluckstein intends the new edition will be as consequential as the original, this time in spurring action on behalf of Native American and Alaskan women. More than one in three Native women will be raped at some point in their lives. Sexual assault is so common in these communities that many Native American and Alaska Native women don’t know any women who haven’t experienced the trauma. In addition, many perpetrators go unpunished. Gluckstein sees DIGNITY’s second edition as contributing to the current effort to insure these women receive adequate post-rape care mandated by the U.S. Tribal Law and Order Act - Sexual Assault Protocols and the UN Declaration. “I believe in the power of images to shift consciousness.”

Gluckstein will be in conversation with Tarah Demant, Director of the Gender, Sexuality and Identity Program for Amnesty International, and leads the organization’s work on women’s rights, LGBTI rights, the rights of Indigenous Peoples, and sexual and reproductive rights.

In addition, Pam Kingfisher is the owner of Shining Waters Consulting, a Native woman owned organization providing culturally competent consulting with nonprofits and foundations. She is an environmental and Native American women's rights activist.
