Understanding the UCSC Land Acknowledgement

The act of sharing the UCSC land acknowledgement at public events, meetings and in the classroom has increased interest in what land acknowledgements are meant to do, who they are for and why they are done. There are many questions about the UCSC land acknowledgement: How and when was it created? Who wrote it? Why does it include information about other tribes? Why is it important? Join us for a conversation with members of Amah Mutsun Tribal Band to learn more. 

This will be a hybrid event (in-person or livestream available). This is the inaugural event of the new UCSC Community Archiving Program, and a recording of the lecture will be the second acquisition of the UCSC Community Archive. Hosted by the University Library Special Collections and Archives, co-sponsored by the American Indian Resource Center and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program.
