Nimíipuu Perspectives III: A Conversation on Place, Practice, and Knowledge
April 22 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
WSU Pullman is located on the homelands of the Nimíipuu (Nez Perce) Tribe and Palus people. The Nimíipuu maintain legal rights and moral responsibilities to engage and protect this land. Please join us for the last of three meetings, featuring respected members of the Nez Perce Tribe, sharing their perspectives on topics relating to their homeland, history, traditional practices, and treaty rights. It is especially important that we hear such perspectives, as a Land Grant University that has benefitted from the appropriation of Indigenous lands (see the High County News articles on “Land Grab Universities”)
At this final meeting, our four previous speakers will return as a panel and converse with the Affiliates and Associates of the Center for Native American Research & Collaboration and other guests. The four speakers are Bill Picard, Otis Halfmoon, Harry Slickpoo, Jr., and Andre Picard, Jr. If you have questions about the land upon which your institution sits, the people who have developed relationships with that land since time immemorial, and how academia can be more respectful of those legal and moral relationships, this will be a great time to ask them.
