Indigenous and Black Experiences in Georgia Speaker Series: Land Acknowledgments and Historical Dispossession of Southeast Native Americans

Institute of Native American Studies

Dr James Owen, Assistant Director of UGA's Institute of Native American Studies, will discuss the purpose of a land acknowledgement and why these statements are important, especially at an institution like UNG, which played a particular role in the dispossession of Cherokee Nation in teh early 19th century. Land acknowledgements are not about placing blame on Euro-American societies, but about acknowledging Native roles that have been historically overwritten.
