      November 12 & 19 (Wednesdays) - Harvard Law School Native Foods Day
      Location: Harkness Commons, Harvard Law School
      Time: 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

      November 10 (Monday) - Digging Veritas: The Archaeology and History of the Indian College
      Location: Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology - Hall of the North American Indian
      Time: 5:00 –7:00 p.m.
      Description: The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology presents a new exhibition on the archaeology of Harvard Yard entitled Digging
      Veritas: The Archaeology and History of the Indian College and Student Life at Colonial Harvard. Through archaeological finds from Harvard Yard, historic maps, and more, the exhibition reveals how students lived at Colonial Harvard, and the role of the Indian College in Harvard’s early years.

      Student archaeologists unearthed evidence of colonial Harvard as a landscape shaped by social and religious tensions—tensions that affected everything from Native American and English settler relationships to the everyday routines of student life. As the students searched for meaning in the material remains of Harvard students of the past, three themes emerged: literacy and the Indian College; rule (breaking) and religion; and negotiations of social status. Who knew small fragments buried below ground could reveal so much?
      November 13 (Thursday) - From Stereotyping to Invisibility: Consequences of American Indian Social Representations on American Indian and European American Students
      Location: Harvard University, Boylston Hall - Fong Auditorium
      Time: Reception: 6:00 – 6:30 p.m.; Presentation: 6:30 p.m.

      Description: Stephanie A. Fryberg, Assistant Professor in the department of Psychology and an Affiliate Faculty member in American Indian Studies at the University of Arizona, will examine the impact of both stereotypes and invisibility on psychological wellbeing of American Indian students.
