ENRICH Webinar: Measuring the Efficacy of Land Acknowledgements

January 27, 2023, 1:00 pm-2:00 pm ET

As Indigenous Land Acknowledgements gain in popularity amongst institutions in what is now known as the United States, it has become apparent that some statements represent a genuine commitment to decolonization while others fall short - but what makes a Land Acknowledgement one that activates change? Join us in an extended discussion focused on the efficacy of Indigenous Land Acknowledgement, guides for cultural institutions, and meaningful steps towards advocacy, action and change.


ENRICH Webinar: Copyright and Ownership of Indigenous Sound Recordings

February 28, 2023, 3:00 pm-4:30 pm ET

What recourse do Indigenous communities have to protect their rights over ceremonies, songs and narratives documented by ethnographers and now being digitized and widely circulated? What happens when songs and Ancestors come home again? Join us as we bring together tribal attorneys, experts on decolonial archives, and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers to discuss examples of these forms of archival violence, as well as legal and extralegal solutions to these problems. This event is designed for Native communities as a knowledge-sharing space. A summary report, recording, and follow-up resources will be available following the event.
