Join the UCLA American Indian Studies Center for this special event as we launch the new digital project “Carrying our Ancestors Home” and talk through the land acknowledgement and its importance in engaging a new path forward with tribal communities. Discussions will include UCLA as a land grant institution, the state of NAGPRA and a Q&A with Mishuana Goeman (Special Advisor to the Chancellor on Native American and Indigenous Affairs), Shannon Speed (Director of the American Studies Center), and Wendy Teeter (Curator of Archaeology at the Fowler Museum).
