Decolonial Thinking as a Method for Understanding Minowaking as “The Good Land”

October 9, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Dr. Mark D. Freeland, Director of Electa Quinney Institute and Associate Professor of Anthropology, UWM.

To understand the contemporary work of Indigenous peoples, we must not only understand the colonialism we are undoing, but we must also be able to recognize the non-colonial relationships we have in our spaces. In this discussion we will examine the name of this place, Minowaking, as the Good Land, to demonstrate how Indigenous worldview helps shape our understanding of, and interactions with, our environment.  Host: Dan O’Keefe

In-Person or Online at 10:00!

In-Person: In Max Otto Hall.

Online: Watch the livestream at 10:00 or a later time at our YouTube channel  You will not be able to ask questions.

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
