Scott Manning Stevens, associate professor and director of Native American and Indigenous studies in the College of Arts & Sciences, was quoted in the Rochester First story “Celebrating Indigenous People’s Day in Rochester.” Stevens says that education about Native American history and Indigenous communities is “seriously lacking,” but recent civil rights movements have ignited better recognition for the holiday. “People realize it’s not just ‘well I’m not Native American so I don’t care about it’ but there are some kind of intersectional quilters about social justice,” says Stevens.
