Ishi: The Last of His Kind

Sunday, August 25 at 3 PM

Duke University anthropologist Orin Starn discusses the story of Ishi, the so-called “last wild Indian in North America” who hid out for decades in the California mountains until his capture in 1916. Learn about the challenges confronting Native American people in the face of invading pioneers, and the remarkable story of Ishi’s life in hiding and as the lone survivor of his Yahi tribe in modern San Francisco.
