One Maryland One Book Presentation
September 20 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Presentation by Dr. Ashley Minner Jones. In the mid-twentieth century, thousands of American Indians migrated to Baltimore City seeking jobs and a better quality of life. There they created a vibrant, intertribal community that they affectionately referred to as their “reservation.” Today, most Baltimoreans are surprised to learn the reservation ever existed, but this is changing. Ashley Minner Jones will share the story of an intergenerational team’s process to reconstruct the reservation and reactivate heritage through oral histories, archival research, mapping, and walking. Three free, public resources have been released to that end: the Illustrated Guide to East Baltimore’s Historic American Indian “Reservation,” baltimorereservation.com, and the Guide to Indigenous Baltimore mobile walking tour apps.
