From Jeff Layne
International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures
Dr. Hannah Burdette opens her presentation with a territorial acknowledgement and explains the importance of these acknowledgements. More lectures and classrooms on campus are beginning their sessions with territorial acknowledgement of the Mechoopda Tribe. This sets the stage for her presentation on Native American tribes from the Nunavut in Canada to the Wallampu in Chile and Argentina. She discusses the plethora of poetry and novels that have evolved from Native American culture and the limitations of trying to interpret them.
