About the symposium

This symposium will ask us to consider non-Western or non-conventional ways of knowing (aka epistemologies) and doing (aka methodologies). Three activist-intellectuals and educators with ties to civil society will share their knowledge and experiences. More specifically, they will share highly topical, crucial, and current-day decolonizing practices that contest colonizing legacies.

Renee Sans Souci will share Indigenous Umonhon (Omaha) knowledges regarding reverence for and connections with Mother Earth.

Lory Dance will share grassroots methods of working respectfully and collaboratively with Indigenous and other underrepresented communities who have histories of involuntary geographical relocation.

Gabrielle Högstadius, based on her knowledge of Swedish colonialism's history towards Sápmi and her experiences from the course "Stories from Sápmi," is going to have a conversation with Lory Dance and Reene Sans Souci.
