Minaadendamowin: Respect, Acknowledgement, Visibility, and Supporting Native American College Students

This workshop will share the outcomes from the 2018 U-M Native American Student Task Committee (NASTC) report as a point of departure to discuss evidence-based practices for supporting Native American students in higher education.
Because the first recommendation is to institutionalize the decolonizing practice of territorial acknowledgment, the workshop will examine the practice as well as consider the critiques and discourse around the practice, especially by Native American and indigenous scholars.
The workshop will then conclude with an exploration of other indigenizing and decolonizing practices that can support the academic success and educational attainment of Native American students, including campus smudging policies, supporting sense of place and belonging, and the #landback movement.
Learning Objectives:

Overview of the recommendations from the U-M Native American Student Task Committee (NASTC)
Examination of the practice of territorial acknowledgment and the current critique and discourse
Exploration of authentic indigenizing and decolonizing practices to support Native American students in higher education
