What happened to indigenous peoples on the lands we now call Brooklyn? Seattle? South Dakota? The United States? And what is happening now?
Join our colleagues at the Center for Brooklyn History for this virtual event. Look back in order to move forward towards justice in this program that weaves together indigenous history and stories and shines a spotlight on today’s struggles to reclaim lost land, dismantle white supremacy, and establish indigenous sovereignty.
Oral Historian Sara Sinclair, of Cree-Ojibwa, German-Jewish and British descent, leads this conversation with Duwamish Tribal Council Member James Rasmussen, Corinne Rice-Grey Cloud, social media influencer and consultant of Lakota/Mohawk descent, and Delaware Nation member Brent Stonefish. Together they look at real solutions being implemented today, lay out ways to be allies in the Land Back Movement, and invite you to be not merely a witness to injustice, but an engaged ally in making restitution for the past.
