Dr. Andrew Peters

Please join the Department of American Indian Studies in welcoming Associate Professor Andrew Peters, a descendant of the Yarra Yarra and Yorta Yorta peoples, as our first Native Speakers Series guest on Indigenous Peoples Day, October 9th 2023.

Dr. Peters will discuss sports, culture, and Indigenous identity in Australia. Dr. Peters, along with UNCP AIS faculty and Indigenous Studies faculty at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, has collaborated for the past nine years on the Indigenous International Exchange Consortium (IIEC). This travel study program has brought students from each of these universities to Melbourne and Saskatchewan and will bring students from these universities to Pembroke in 2024.

The series features nationally recognized American Indian scholars and artists who will delve into diverse topics and issues including Lumbee history, Native cuisine, health and wellness and Southeastern Native art.

Admission to the series is free and open to the public. For more information, email, or call 910.521.6266.
