How We Go Homeedited by oral historian Sara Sinclair, shares contemporary first-person Indigenous stories in the long and ongoing fight to protect Native land, rights, and life. In myriad ways, each narrator’s life has been shaped by loss, injustice, resilience, and the struggle to share space with settler nations. In this roundtable conversation, narrator Ashley Hemmers will be joined by the book’s editor, Sara Sinclair, and News from Native California editor, Terria Smith, to discuss representation and visibility of Indigenous communities today.

This event is cosponsored by Voice of Witness (VOW), a San Francisco-based nonprofit that advances human rights by amplifying the voices of people impacted by—and fighting against—injustice. The VOW Book Series depicts human rights issues through the edited oral histories of people—VOW narrators—who are most deeply impacted and at the heart of solutions to address injustice. The series explores issues of race-, gender-, and class-based inequity through the lenses of the criminal justice system, migration, and displacement. The VOW Education Program connects over 20,000 educators, students, and advocates each year with these stories and issues through oral history-based curricula, trainings, and holistic educational support.
