C-SPAN recording of Chip Colwell-Chathaphonh speaking about his book Massacre at Camp Grant: Forgetting and Remembering Apache History (University of Arizona Press; May 17, 2007).
In his book he discusses a forgotten massacre on April 30, 1871, of more than a hundred Apache men, women, and children who had surrendered to the U.S. Army at Camp Grant, near Tucson, Arizona. His book creates a multivocal narrative from documents and oral traditions to explore the tangled nature of collective memory and the politics of history. He responded to questions from members of the audience.
Dick Miller moderated this discussion, which was sponsored by the National Council on Public History. Massacre at Camp Grant was the 2009 NCPH Book Award winner.
This was a program at the American Association for State and Local History Annual Meeting, Making History a 21st Century Enterprise, held Wednesday, August 26, 2009 – Saturday August 29, 2009, at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.
