Indigenous culture, practices, knowledge systems and protocol is an integral part of redressing systemic racism. Ms. Saulis will discuss the idea of erasure that has permeated our society and how acts of genocide have impacted if and how people see and hear Indigenous Peoples.
Specific to MIT, she will cover the actions taken by the Institute thus far to set a better relationship with Indigenous students and offer next steps to be taken. Her lecture will conclude both with gratitude and hope for all our future generations as we seek to reconcile the injustices of the past.
