Ned Christie and the Consequences of Fake News, presented by Devon Mihesuah
We deeply apologize, but due to a mass outage in internet service in the area, we have been forced to reschedule the keynote address a day later. It will now be held live at 11am ET, Oct. 20th. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

In 1887, Cherokee Ned Christie was accused of murdering U.S. Deputy Marshall Dan Maples in Tahlequah, Indian Territory. Despite there being no evidence, hundreds of “fake news” stories about Ned were printed. This presentation discusses how fake news shaped Christie's image as an iconic symbol of Wild West violence and Native savagery.
