In that pursuit I think you will find this sequence to be a very potent one, as it gives us a very clear idea and overstanding what one finds one self up against when being committed to telling the truth amongest the “higher ups”…Dr. Ward Churchill, for me, is one of the greatest scholars living and clearest I’ve ever studied. The firing on July 24, 2007 of University of Colorado ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill on charges of historical fabrication and falsification must be opposed by all of us who are defenders of truth and struggle via intellectual discourse.
Lecture recorded on Monday May 2, 2005 at California State University Monterey Bay.
Dr. Churchill , at the time of this lecture, was a Professor of American Indian … Studies and former Chair of the Ethnic Studies Department at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he was worked since 1978, and is on the leadership council of the American Indian Movement of Colorado. He has authored, co-authored or edited more than 20 books, including A Little Matter of Genocide: Holocaust and Denial in the Americas, 1492 to the Present; Acts of Rebellion: The Ward Churchill Reader; and Agents of Repression: The FBI’s Secret Wars Against the Black Panther Pary and the American Indian Movement. He has received numerous writing and teaching awards and, as of 2001, was the most cited scholar in his field. In 2004 Professor Churchill was named runner-up for the Gustavus Myers Award of Best Writing on Human Rights for On the Justice of Roosting of Roosting Chickens: Reflections on the Consequences of U.S. Imperial Arrogance and Criminality and was inducted into the Martin Luther King Collegium of Scholars.

I like Ward Churchill.
When he walked into my journalism class on Wednesday I could smell fire from a mile away.
Churchill’s crisp white shirt matched the white stripes in his hair, just as everything I knew about him up until meeting him was perfectly matched by his swagger.
Ward came to talk about his rather abusive relationship with the media throughout the past three years. Needless to say, he had a lot to articulate.
Enhanced by his mischievous smile and the witty banter to back it up, listening to Churchill talk was like taking part in a duel, except you forgot your arsenal. Every word from his clearly well equipped artillery is sharpened like a knife.
My mother would call him a smartass–a tall, highly publicized and irrefutable smartass. But isn’t that why we love him? That’s certainly part of it.
Ward Churchill is a man who, if nothing else, has seized our attention and caused us to think . . . Read More.
