Association Chat | Going Beyond Land Acknowledgement
Join AORE Leadership and members as we come together to discuss industry current events, challenges and member questions.
The first half we will hear from members who translating from talk on land acknowledgement and relations with indigenous people. It seems that the more we know, the more complicated it gets (or maybe it’s 2020 – what does going beyond acknowledgement mean? What if where we are, or at least I am – in a rural area – even a land acknowledgement is radical?) I don’t have answers, though am trying on my own to do something – turning our fields to prairie. That isn’t a big answer though. I can at the very least use what I have learned about the various eras of federal and tribal relations to help understand how we got here
The second half of our chat is open forum. We invite you to bring your current challenges, successes, questions, and experiences. As a collective group, we will determine the path of discussion the forum takes and provide opportunity for members to support each other through shared experiences.
