Noted novelist and historian Robert Moss will present SUNY Press’s Third Annual John G. Neihardt Lecture. He will begin his lecture, "Four Indian Kings, Dream Archaeology, and the Iroquois Struggle for Survival on the New York Frontier," with a bit of entertainment by following the adventures of Four Indian Kings at the court of Queen Anne in 1710 as they are taken to see Macbeth and to a horrible scene of bear-baiting. He will then discuss his own development of a discipline he calls dream archaeology which involves reclaiming authentic knowledge of ancestral traditions through a combination of careful research, active dream work, and shamanic journeying across time and between dimensions. He will end his lecture by delving into the Iroquois struggle for survival before the American Revolution. A reception will follow the lecture. This event is FREE and open to the public.
