Our third Fall 2023 ISWG session is coming up! Pop by on Zoom (see flyer) or in person (UPLA 105) on Friday, November 17, 2023, to discuss Seventh Generation Thinking in the Academy. Let’s think about how our work in academia honors seven generations past and contributes to a better world for seven generations ahead. This ISWG will complement James Vukelich’s talk happening on 11/16. Please note, James will not be in attendance for this event.

The Indigenous Studies Working Group (ISWG) is a community of scholars, activists, students, and community members who get together 6-8 times per semester to share ideas and offer feedback on each other’s work. The intention of ISWG is to establish an ongoing campus space where Indigenous scholars – and those who focus on Indigenous issues – can share ideas in an environment that truly recognizes Indigenous knowledge and its importance. Moreover, ISWG intends to be a non-competitive and dialogical space where Indigenous knowledge serves to decolonize the academy.
