Descriptions

American Indian Library Association

According to the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture, "In Countries Such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and among Tribal Nations in The U.S., it is commonplace, even policy, to open events and gatherings by acknowledging the traditional Indigenous inhabitants of that land."

Land acknowledgements are meant to honor Indigenous people, and have been used to start conversations on how non-Indigenous people can better support Indigenous sovereignty. However, it can be overwhelming to know how to get started.

Ahead of Indigenous People's Day, join us as Allison Waukau, Menominee/Navajo Nations, a member of the American Indian Library Association, shares best practices for land acknowledgements and honoring local tribes.

Moderator Stephanie Sendaula is Programming and Outreach Specialist at LibraryLinkNJ.
