Symposium topics include Universities & Treaty Responsibility, Anishinaabemowin, Food and Environmental Justice, Settler Colonialism in the Great Lakes Region, Educational Sovereignty, and more. For a full list of panels, please see the tentative agenda-at-glance.
Events are free and registration can be found here. Meals are provided for pre-registered symposium attendees. Coinciding with the symposium, the University will also host Native Family Day on September 21, 2019. Native Family Day is an event for Anishinaabeg and other Indigenous youth and their families to visit campus, hear from current students, and take an indigenized campus tour.
All ages are encouraged to come to campus and take part in this series of programming, which is designed to raise awareness about the history of the Land on which MSU resides. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Edweying Naabing//Looking at the Past and Present Symposium is co-hosted by the MSU Indigenous Law and Policy Center, American Indian and Indigenous Studies, and Native American Institute. Programming is supported by various co-sponsors.
Dr. Gordon Henry and Ivy Schweitzer have a new book to be released in September, with cover art by Dr. Elizabeth LaPensée. You can pre-order the book online.
Afterlives of Indigenous Archives offers a compelling critique of Western archives and their use in the development of “digital humanities.” The essays collected here present the work of an international and interdisciplinary group of indigenous scholars; researchers in the field of indigenous studies and early American studies; and librarians, curators, activists, and storytellers. The contributors examine various digital projects and outline their relevance to the lives and interests of tribal people and communities, along with the transformative power that access to online materials affords. The authors aim to empower native people to re-envision the Western archive as a site of community-based practices for cultural preservation, one that can offer indigenous perspectives and new technological applications for the imaginative reconstruction of the tribal past, the repatriation of the tribal memories, and a powerful vision for an indigenous future. This important and timely collection will appeal to archivists and indigenous studies scholars alike.
