Description

In November 2021, during Native American Heritage Month, a campus-wide conversation was held 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 open panel discussion included 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.

Invited Guests:

  • Dr. Rev. John Norwood (Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape, NJ)
  • Turtle Clan Chief Vincent Mann (Ramapough, NJ)
  • Dr. Lisa Brooks (Choctaw, OK)
  • Moderators: Brianna Dagostino & Daine Ocampo Martinez
