AIS Department Statement in Support of Black Lives Matter


We, the American Indian Studies faculty and staff, acknowledge the insidiousness of anti-Blackness throughout all our Tribal nations in addition to communities across America – north, south, east and west. As Native people, we are committed to holding ourselves, our relatives, and our communities accountable when we perpetuate anti-Blackness. We dedicate ourselves to the work of decolonization and anti-racism for all, as we continue to maintain and invigorate Indigenous Nationhood.
