An extraordinary talk about the Native American’s history will be take place in Liverpool’s St George’s Hall this July.

Merseyside writer and history enthusiast David Charter will be hosting a talk on the importance of the Native Americans including the likes of renowned Native American icons Sitting BullRed CloudChief Joseph and Geronimo.

The discussion puts stress on acknowledging the troubled history of the ‘forgotten Americans’, especially on a day as poignant as Independence Day.

Its theme is the valiant, but doomed, wars fought by Native Americans to protect their lands from aggressive, greedy and often ruthless invaders.

“In this talk, I will tell the true stories of some of those wars that led to the Native Americans losing all that was dear to them.” 

David has been a journalist for almost 50 years, including 25 years as a columnist for the old Liverpool Daily Post. He now writes the Bard of Birkenhead column, which appears in the Wirral edition of the Liverpool Echo every Friday.

Attendees must arrive at 2pm. Tickets can be booked by calling 0151 225 6903 or can be purchased on the door.
