On Tuesday, September 18, please join us for a Talks @ Pulitzer with multimedia reporter Allison Herrera who will speak about her project, Inter(Nation)al.

From Maine to California, these treaties affect all American citizens–Native and non-native–even decades past their ratification. Tribes across the nation are still entrapped in a battle with the government for tribal land, sovereign, and cultural rights. Developed by Herrera and Pulitzer Center grantees Isaac Kestenbaum and Josephine Holtzman at NPR’s StoryLab program, this Pulitzer Center-supported project consists of broadcasts for NPR’s news magazine programming, as well as a pilot podcast episode and a short video in partnership with NPR’s video team.

Herrera is a correspondant at Public Radio International (PRI) for Across Women's Lives. 

Her multimedia experience includes covering Native American communities for KOSU Radio, serving as editor of the online publication Twin Cities Daily Planet, and producing radio and video work for Twin Cities Public Television, Ampers, KFAI, KSMQ, and others. She has also produced a series of shows touching on art, culture, history, and the environment for KBFT radio on the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa reservation.

Light reception begins at 5:30pm, followed by Herrera's talk at 6:00pm. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.

Space is limited—remember to reserve your seat today!
