University of California, Berkeley Hosts The Carlisle Story

University of California, Berkeley, is hosting Football Indian Style: The Carlisle Story, at their Institute for the Study of Societal Issues on Thursday, March 17 at 4pm.  The event is being presented by the Institute’s Joseph A. Myers Center for Research on Native American issues along with the Center for the Study of Social Change.

Nicole Myers-Lim, Pomo, a staff attorney with the National Indian Justice Center, is delivering the lecture on the Carlisle Indian School football team, who in 1907 were the most dynamic college football team in the country.  This boarding school faced the nation’s top collegiate teams and often won, thanks in no small part to Olympic Champion Jim Thorpe.  The Carlisle team is credited with helping pioneer the forward pass, the overhand spiral, and myriad other football tactics that are crucial elements to the modern game.

Myers-Lim will spotlight this era of sports history and their incredible, and often unacknowledged or unknown, contributions to America’s most popular sport, as well as their effect on changing federal Indian policy.

The event is free.  For wheelchair access, please call: 510-642-0813 today.
