Indigenous Peoples’ Day honors the Native American community: their vibrant culture and deep ties to land. Commemorate the day with us online. Join Debra Yepa-Pappan (Jemez Pueblo/Korean), the Field Museum’s Community Engagement Coordinator for the Native North America Hall, in conversation with:
Heather Miller (Wyandotte), Executive Director of the American Indian Center of Chicago
Felicia Garcia (Samala Chumash), Curator of Education, Indian Arts Research Center, School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe
Meranda Roberts (Yerington Paiute/Chicana), post-doctoral researcher at the Field Museum
Together they’ll discuss the custom of land acknowledgments; their importance, complexities, and evolution; and what actions can follow a land acknowledgment.
This event is free to all who register in advance.
