“For the Welfare of the Whole People”: Heritage Stewardship in Indigenous and Black Communities
Local descendant communities and Indigenous nations continue to be at the center of heritage preservation efforts. While their methods are not always recognized by academic or governmental organizations, they employ innovative and culturally-appropriate ways of caring for and keeping alive their heritage in all its manifestations. This panel is composed of leading Indigenous and Black activists, scholars, and community organizers, providing a renewed focus on contemporary conservation practices, historytelling, and ways of being in the world.
