Tall Tales | Oak Flat

A book program designed to help us learn about the many varied cultures, landscapes, and stories of the American West past and present. Before the program, read the selected book, then join us as we gather together to engage in meaningful conversations and shared experiences.

In our exhibit, Night & Day: Frederic Remington’s Last Decade, the American Southwest features prominently in many of Frederic Remington’s paintings, a few of which allude to or portray members of the Apache. What is the relationship of the Apache to the land? Join us for the next Tall Tales as we read and discuss Oak Flat: A Fight for Sacred Land in the American West by Lauren Redniss. This visual nonfiction book explores a place – Oak Flat in southeastern Arizona – and the people connected to that place – San Carlos Apache.
