What can we learn from Black and Indigenous history, activism, and contemporary stewardship efforts in order to transform higher education, health, policing, and other Western institutions?

This dialogue will examine and discuss major points of cultural and historic community convergence between Black and Indigenous Peoples with a focus on contemporary movements such as Black Lives Matter and Idle No More and the dismantling of racist statues, images, and mascots.

Dr. Andrew Jolivétte will explore what these movements mean for enacting justice interventions and moving towards thrivance circuity, kinship building, self-determination, and abolition as transformational modes of joy production and ceremonial stewardship.
