Morris Cohort

The Morris Cohort is leading practical curricular and co-curricular institutional change through projects that will help decolonize and indigenize institutional practices, and reflect their context as a Native American Serving Non-Tribal Institution. They are holding six listening sessions open to the campus community and tribal partners, asking how decolonization, indigenization, and sustainability can be integrated into work at Morris. They are bridging Native Indigenous studies in North America and Latin America with curriculum connecting trans-Indigenous literatures, methods, and themes. Morris is partnering with the Sisseton Wapheton Oyate to explore how traditional ecological knowledge and Indigenous food and seed sovereignty practices can inform food systems and food security.
