The Indigenous Studies Working Group is a group of faculty, staff and students engaged in discussing Indigenous studies across disciplines and departments, and exploring how such studies can be integrated into the community and curriculum of Brooklyn College. If you are interested in taking part in the conversation, please join us!
As part of our work, we are putting together a list of resources, available here. Many of the materials currently listed are available through the Brooklyn College Library collections and/or are freely available online. If there are resources that should be added, please let us know. It is very much a work in progress, and we want your input!
"[We] must acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Lenape. We, the Brooklyn College community, acknowledge that academic institutions, indeed the nation-state itself, was founded upon and continues to enact exclusions and erasures of Indigenous Peoples. This acknowledgment demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle ongoing legacies of settler colonialism, and to recognize the hundreds of Indigenous Nations who continue to resist, live, and uphold their sacred relations across their lands. We also pay our respect to Indigenous elders past, present, and future and to those who have stewarded this land throughout the generations." -- Kenneth Gould, Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) at Brooklyn College
