Please join us at the next CARTA Public Symposium on "Awareness of
Death and Personal Mortality: Implications for Anthropogeny" to be
held on Friday, March 3, 2017, from 1:00-5:30 pm at the Salk Institute
(Conrad T. Prebys Auditorium). Below is the lineup of speakers and
their talks.


While certain warm-blooded social animals and birds appear to react
selectively and specifically to the death of other members of their
group, humans seem to be very unusual in the quality and extent of our
responses, and in the ability to translate these experiences into an
understanding of our personal mortality.
• When during childhood do these levels of understanding emerge?
• What is the underlying neurobiological basis for fears of
death and mortality?
• When during human evolution did these fears emerge, and how
did our ancestors tolerate them without sinking into an evolutionary
dead end of depression or hopelessness?
• Assuming we found a solution to this dilemma, why are we
still the only mammals that commit suicide?
• What does the archaeological, historical and cross-cultural
record tell us about these matters?
• And what are the consequences for our current human
condition, ranging from self-esteem to social organization, to
political leanings?
This symposium will bring together expert speakers from a wide range
of different disciplines that are relevant to seeking answers to these
questions. In the process we will gain a better understanding of how
increasing awareness of death and personal mortality shaped the origin
of humans.

Admission is free and open to the public; however, registration is
required. To register, go to:

Note that the entire symposium will once again be viewable online via
a live webcast. A link to the live webcast will be posted on the
page<> on the day of the event. You will need to log in to your CARTA account in order to access the live webcast, but you do NOT need to register for the

Professor Dian Million (University of Washington)

"We are the land and the land is us": Indigenous land, lives and
embodied ecologies in the 21st century

Second Biannual Krystyna Sieciechowicz Memorial Lecture and
Colloquium, co-sponsored by the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual
Diversity Studies, the Department of History, and Equity Studies

6:00-8:00pm, UC 140, 15 King's College Circle, followed by reception
in UC 183, Croft Chapter House

Please register at

Canada and the United States have portrayed their own economic and
social growth in an upward linear trajectory from the primitive to the
modern. Currently, this continuing belief in the primitive Indigenous
is expressed as a spatial separation. Rural communities are seen as
wasting away in "wild and pristine" environments contrasted with
opportunity in the bustling centers of urban capitalism. This is far
from the reality of today's Indigenous peoples, who the U.S. and
Canada tout as 70% urbanized. Building on Krystyna Sieciechowicz's
elemental work on kinship and land stewardship in the north I explore
the present moment where American Indian, Alaska Native and Canadian
Indigenous peoples recognize complex relations rather than stark
separation in this figure. In this talk I move to show how enduring
relations with place and land, along with mobile kinships provide a
continuing resistance to settler colonialism. Current settler
colonialism is sexualized gendered violence to people and their
relations. In the north this is presented within a context of "climate
change," (unsustainable carbon use) where Inuit and other northern
arctic and boreal forest peoples have begun to starve while Canada and
the United States proclaim their indigenous life ways 'unsustainable.'

Professor Million is an Associate Professor at the University of
Washington whose research explores Native American gender, health,
race and ethnicity. Her most recent book, Therapeutic Nations:
Healing in an Age of Indigenous Human Rights (University of Arizona
Press, Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies Series, 2013) is a
discussion of trauma as a political narrative in the struggle for
Indigenous self-determination in an era of global neoliberalism.
