Bigger Histories: Indigenous Archaeology and Decolonizing Perspectives in Education

This half-day symposium, organized in conjunction with International Archaeology Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day, aims to explore how archaeology has engaged – and how it can better engage – with indigenous values and practices through community-based projects and classroom pedagogy. We will hear from professionals, community members, and students, both indigenous and non-indigenous, on how indigenous perspectives in archaeology and cultural heritage initiatives have enhanced their work in scholarship, pedagogy, and community development. Ultimately, we will aim to better understand how indigenous archaeology and broader decolonizing perspectives in education can foster more engaged,compassionate, and forward-thinking citizens October 13th, 1-5 pm, Tahoma Room, Thomas Hall. Free and Open to the Public.
