Description

Understanding America: Acknowledging Tribal Nation Land & What That Means for Yale

We are very excited for our next conversation in our Understanding America series which will be led by Dr. Matthew Makomenaw, the Director of Yale's Native-American Cultural Center (NACC) & Assistant Dean at Yale College, and current Yale College student, Meghan Gupta, who is the founder and editor-in-chief of Indigenizing the News.

In this conversation, Dr. Makomenaw & Meghan will discuss key historical moments that have led to tribal nation sovereignty, identity, and place in contemporary America. As you may have noticed, tribal nation land acknowledgements are becoming common at many of Yale's events and this discussion will provide a deeper understanding of what that means and why they are important.

Here are a few suggested resources for you to check-out before the conversation:

As a reminder, our Understanding America discussion series brings together expert speakers from Yale and the New Haven community to break down key issues happening at Yale, in New Haven, and the U.S. at large and to provide some historical context. We want you to have a comfortable space to engage in a lively discussion, offer opinions, and gain insights into some complex features of U.S. society and culture. We hope to see you there!

Note: Not suitable for children under the age of 15. The series is open to the Yale Community, and we encourage you to come with questions and an open mind. Please RSVP in order to attend.
