4/19/21: Land Acknowledgements (Register-Here )

Land Acknowledgments have become more common and popular for public events within and outside of Academia. What is a Land Acknowledgment? What does it mean to do one in a meaningful way? How might we move beyond mere acknowledgment to other ways of actively decolonizing our learning and living spaces? This panel features Professor Sonya Atalay (UMass) and others in a presentation and discussion of how to collaboratively engage with Native community members to produce effective Land Acknowledgment work.
