VIRTUAL: Indigenous Land Awareness & Acknowledgment in Outdoor Recreation
November 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Monday, November 9 from 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Whose land are we recreating on? What does it mean to acknowledge Indigenous lands? How does social media and location-tagging come into play? And how does this all relate to the lands on and around our campus? These questions and more will be addressed in a virtual discussion with Dr. Darren J. Ranco, Chair of the UMaine Native American Programs and Associate Professor of Anthropology and James Francis, Director of the Cultural and Historic Preservation Department for the Penobscot Nation. RVSP by Friday November 6 to email@example.com to receive the link.
Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, School of Kinesiology, Physical Education & Athletic Training, Maine Bound, and the Outdoor Leadership Program. These presentations are supported in part by a grant from the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series Fund.
