Keynote Address: Tristan Ahtone And Robert Lee #LANDGRABU

Thursday, October 14, 2021
4:00pm – 5:30pm

Storrs Campus
Virtual

The NACP and NAISA will host Tristan Ahtone and Bobby Lee, creators of the Land Grab U project, as keynote speakers, which will be held virtually. The keynote event will address the wealth and land accumulation built through the dispossession of Indigenous people and how they are tied to the Land Grant university system through the Morrill Act of 1862. Rather than the common panel discussion with a standard question and answer pattern, the keynote will preempt the in-depth, participatory Encounters Series dialogue, which will take place on the following day.
