The Path Toward Racial Equity: A Conversation about Land Acknowledgments


About the Program

As the city with the third highest population of urban Indians in the US, Chicago is home to more than 65,000 from 175 different tribes. Arts Club Board President Laura Washington engages artist Andrea Carlson, writer John N. Low, and artist/programmer Debra Yepa-Pappan about the tradition of acknowledging the indigenous peoples who lived on the lands in which cultural events now take place. They also share aspects of their own creative production and consider the state of indigenous arts in Chicago.
