Collaborating Well with Indigenous Partners

June 26, 2020, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Session Type: Panel

The traditional values at the center of Native communities are a touchstone for many people seeking peace, unity, and justice in these uncertain times. This session will provide a primer and tools for the uninitiated and a deeper dive for those with previous experience in cross-cultural collaboration, in a safe space for asking those difficult questions. Topics covered will include land acknowledgment and beyond; welcome to country/land; protocols for welcoming international Indigenous artists; indigenizing your concept of time; making place and indigenizing space; decolonization; and cross-cultural communication.
Learning Objectives:
  • Build knowledge about why and how to value and acknowledge the arts and culture of Indigenous people locally, nationally (Native Americans) and internationally.
  • Identify strategies to address challenges that affect inclusion and equity for Indigenous artists and their work.
  • Learn the core concepts of Indigenous protocol.
