Land Acknowledgements are formal statements and public rituals that recognize and respect Indigenous Peoples as traditional stewards of this land and the enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories. This FREE and dynamic webinar will inspire action through the arts, teaching participants the ins and outs of drafting their own public ceremonies, or Land Acknowledgements, using the poetry of Oglala Lakota poet Layli Long Soldier and other indigenous writers, as well as USDAC resources, the careful scrutiny of existing federal legislation, and the solace found in a guided group meditation. The webinar is designed with the intention of disrupting the power dynamic, finding Truth and Reconciliation, and inspiring action through the arts.
