The University of Minnesota (Twin Cities campus) is located in Dakota homeland, on one of the great rivers of the world, in a national park. Our responsibilities to this location call us to think about heritage and water in a manner that is fully inclusive. Three community-engaged anthropologists will bring their perspectives to this discussion. Joe Watkins, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, directed the Native American Studies Program at the University of Oklahoma (2007-13) and consults internationally with Indigenous communities on heritage issues. Barbara Little, adjunct professor of anthropology, University of Maryland, College Park, has published widely on issues of civic engagement and public good. Paul Shackel, director of the University of Maryland’s Center for Heritage Resource Studies, has led numerous community-based archaeology and heritage projects.

Co-sponsored by the IAS Heritage Collaborative and the Minnesota Historical Society/University of Minnesota Heritage Partnership, with funding from an Office of the Provost Imagine Fund Special Projects Grant. To request a disability-related accommodation, please contact the IAS (ias@umn.edu 612-626-5054) at least two weeks prior to the event.
