Local Lands and Contemporary Indigenous Issues

Wednesday, November 10, 12 – 1 PM

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Dr. Elizabeth Rule (enrolled citizen, Chickasaw Nation) joins us from American University to discuss contemporary Indigenous issues. This conversation is an opportunity for UMBC to continue to center Native voices and histories as we rethink our relationship to the Piscataway and Susquehannock land on which the campus sits, and the many indigenous peoples connected to it. This event is sponsored by: Maryland Folklife Network, the Public Humanities Program, and the GWST Department.
