Moriarty Science Seminar: Repatriation Initiated by Whom?

R.W. Moriarty Science Seminar Presents: Repatriation Initiated by Whom?
Speaker: Joe Stahlman
In this talk, Joe will discuss a recent experience where a non-Native community initiated and supported a repatriation into their municipality. Native America usually does not observe this type of engagement from our neighbors. Although a positive step forward in reconciling the past, this endeavor encountered many missteps and educational moments along the way. This talk will focus on that experience and how we can collectively reconcile the past by working with non-Native partners and encouraging community engagement.
