This program was interesting. I think there was some discomfort with the academic approach vs the stories present in our Native community members of the Oneida Nation in attendance. I felt the speaker tried to be respectful of what they could factually prove vs the oral history brought into the conversation. I'd like to see more of these events with a collaborative approach to the story of the Native tribes here in Central NY. left a negative review December 5, 2018

This was a horrible talk that only showed one side of a story, which we all know is not how a story is told. It diminished the history of the Oneida people, whose land that Colgate is located on. He spoke of us in the past tense, he spoke inaccuracies to students and is actually doing a disservice to the University, by telling the students and faculty a half truth.
He disrespected the Oneida people that were in the room, and told a song and dance over the voices of historically traumatized people. He made jokes at our exspense and which the student then thought it was ok to laugh at. They would never crack jokes during a Holocaust history talk, but find it perfectly fine for the presenter to laugh at the division caused by Colonization and destruction of a mighty people. Had it not been for the Oneida people, the revolutionary war, yous might be speaking English a little different.

Jason is a great teacher - I always learn from him.
Good time management with class - for example, someone had a question that he knew would not apply to everyone, so asked that person to stay til end.
