Join Dr. Darren Ranco for a roundtable discussion about the roles that Rematriation, indigenous women, and traditional indigenous land concepts have in the Land Back movement. Dr. Ranco will be joined by Mali Obomsawin (Odanak Abenaki Nation) of the Bomazeen Land Trust, Sherri Mitchell (Penobscot Nation), executive director of the Land Peace Foundation, and another guest TBA.
