Haundenosaunee/Native American Studies Research Group: A Conversation on Hodinöhsö:ni′ Geographies: Unsettling the Settler State.

October 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Please join us on October 1, 2020. 4:00-5:15 pm EST for an informal discussion, A Conversation on Hodinöhsö:ni′ Geographies: Unsettling the Settler State.

This first of three conversations will revolve around a place-based discussion on meaningful acknowledgements in Hodinöhsö:ni′ traditional territories. How might we use land introductions to follow through with a responsibility and commitment to nurturing healthy communities? How is the research and teaching in land grant institutions often in tension with Hodinöhsö:ni′ concepts of land and sovereignty? What process and protocols should be undertaken to engage respectfully, responsibly and with care? Most of all, how might an understanding of Hodinöhsö:ni′ geographies and anti-colonial practices create possibilities for future generations and relationships?
