CANADA: Professor's lecture prompts FBI call

A University of Victoria professor of indigenous studies says the FBI called her after she gave a lecture in the United States about Native American land rights, reports CBC News.

Waziyatawin, who splits her time between Victoria and her home in Minnesota, is an author, historian and activist for land rights of the Dakota people. After a lecture at Winona State University in Minnesota in November, a student accused her in a letter to the local press of inciting violence against white people, Waziyatawin said.

Last week, the FBI called to question her, she said. "The FBI was concerned about national security and, I think, wanted to gauge whether or not I was actually a threat to national security," she said.
