Living into the 8th Principle: Reconsidering Land Acknowledgement

Do we say the same land acknowledgement at every gathering? Does doing so serve the Native people on whose land we gather, or are we engaging in a performance with meaningless words? Adopting the 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism means we do not carry on the same way as before. It means we look at what we do from a new lens – a new perspective. In this session we will explore land acknowledgement from the lens of beloved community, anti-oppression, and healing. We will use a case study on the Piscataway Conoy tribal community to find meaning regarding land acknowledgements and leverage the discussion in a way that can be transferable to discerning land acknowledgement regardless of whose tribal lands we live. Facilitator: Ebony C. Peace.
