"Cloth, Clouds, and Survival: Weavers' Tales from East Timor," with Jill Forshee

March 16, 2013 -
10:00am12:00pm

East Timor proclaimed national independence from Indonesia in 1999. This ended 25 years of warfare and resistance beginning in 1974, when Indonesia invaded the eastern portion of Timor Island. Prior to this, the region had been a colony of Portugal for over 400 years. Today, East Timor is the poorest country in Southeast Asia, with a long history of rule and oppression by outside forces. Jill Forshee has been gathering accounts from a variety of East Timorese for the past 12 years, asking people to tell their stories in their own terms.
