By giving students and the community at large these multifaceted opportunities, learning from departments such as Cinematic Arts, Political Science and RNCI’s Native Studies Companion guide (which is dedicated to the Holocaust series created by RNCI), they’ll discover a global understanding – the essential significance of Native & Indigenous studies affecting each of these disciplines. Our communities will learn to incorporate the art of storytelling into their research and public outreach. Imagine the influence a center like this will have for not just all Angelenos, but internationally?! It’s momentous!
Joanelle Romero will be joined by Aubrey Hicks to discuss the visualization of the Center. We envision a cooperative that explores a variety of academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, in order to produce new and uncover old forms of knowledge, new and old ways of thinking, and creative approaches to teaching, conducting research and storytelling – all of which are connected to the history of Indigenous consciousness and ways of being in the world.
