UC Davis 46th Annual Native American Culture Days Presents:
Chican@ and Indigenous Connections: Long Overdue Conversations
April 7th, 2015 4-8pm SCC- Multi-Purpose Room
This two-part event will engage the relationships between Xican@s and Native American and Indigenous peoples, in the U.S., the borderlands, and Mexico. Some of the questions to be addressed are: As communities, where are we? Where are we going? How do we relate to each other’s indigeneity? What are the tensions, obstacles, and challenges to our understandings of each other? What are some of the positive advances that have brought our communities closer together? How can we come together as peoples who are original to the Americas? How can we manifest solidarity through our relationships with each other?
