Between 1846 and 1873, California’s Indian population
plunged from approximately 150,000 to 30,000.
Benjamin Madley is the first historian to uncover
the full extent of the slaughter, the involvement of
state and federal officials, the taxpayer dollars that
supported the violence, indigenous resistance, who
did the killing, and why the killings ended. This deeply
researched public lecture provides a comprehensive
and chilling history of an American genocide.

This public lecture, organised in cooperation with the Centre for American Studies and the HYPIR Global, Colonial and Postcolonial Cluster, is free of charge and open to the public.
