Acknowledge and Repair: A Conversation About Land Acknowledgement

November 23, 2022

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Sister Marcelline Koch talks with Illinois State Museum leaders about the growing practice of land acknowledgement in relationship to Indian nations that claim Illinois as home.

Illinois was in times past a meeting place for sport and community among Native people. Learn more about how the Illinois State Museum is working to repair the wounds of colonization in the 21st state.
