Decolonize MSU: Soft Launch Event for MSU's Native Land Acknowledgement
In-Person and Zoom
Format: Panel & Open Conversation
During this Native American Heritage Month, come join a campus-wide conversation about Montclair State University's Native Land Acknowledgement, which publicly acknowledges that MSU occupies the traditional territory of the Lenni-Lenape People. It also commits our University to be the urgent, difficult work of decolonization.
Focus on Education: The panel discussion will include a reflection on how K-12 schools and teachers can do more to support Indigenous students and communities, decolonize the curriculum, and teach about Native American history and culture in meaningful, relevant, and effective ways.
