Over the past several years, researchers on Clemson’s campus have committed to identifying and uncovering the history of colonization and slavery directly connected to this campus. In an effort to honor tribal communities that inhabited this land, we recognize Indigenous People’s Day to decolonize the historical narratives, while building awareness about the importance of preserving Native American languages, culture, traditions, and identity.

Join for this virtual workshop experience! The current Tribal Liaison for the University of Wisconsin System, Dr. Pyawasay-Jennings, will offer insight on how universities can utilize policy to work with Native Nations to build institutional infrastructure to support Native students and create meaningful relationships with Native communities.
