Introduces and explores the links between Indigenous languages and land.
This is a class that considers the WSÁNEĆ particular relationships to the place they come from. While the primary focus of the lectures will be WSÁNEĆ territory, place names and related stories, other territories and their people's views, will inevitably be discussed. The topics will range from epistemologies, seasonal cycles, ethnobotany, politics and laws relevant to past, current and future visions of WSÁNEĆ homelands. Some classes will be taught during field trips in WSÁNEĆ territory. Whether you do or do not identify as a WSÁNEĆ person, come ready to examine and discuss your point of view concerning land and the language you use to speak it.
"The Land is the culture, without it we cannot be free as a people." – Philip Paul, WSÁNEĆ
