Native American: How to Talk About Native Nations (online)

October 10 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for this Indigenous People’s Day Event!

Do you ever feel hesitant when searching for the right language to use to talk about Native nations? Join Native Governance Center for a short presentation on terminology basics! In addition to covering what’s ok and not ok, the session will showcase the wide range of opinions on language and terminology within Indian Country. You’ll learn about topics such as:

  • The Native nations that share geography with Mni Sota Makoce
  • Native American vs. Indigenous vs. American Indian
  • Differentiating between reservations, casinos, and Native nations
  • Respectfully referring to individual Native people and groups of Native people

The event is geared toward beginners and open to all: come with your questions! Attendees will participate in breakout sessions and a live Q&A with the presenters.
