Decolonize Thanksgiving Informational Table


HSS Lobby Social Equity and Title IX Office

Thursday, November 14:  Decolonize Thanksgiving Information Table - Visit this display in the HSS lobby between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Stories told about the first Thanksgiving often perpetuate harmful stereotypes and racism. Decolonize your Thanksgiving to go beyond the harmful "pilgrims and Indians" narrative and focus on common values: generosity, gratitude, community, and good food.

November is National Native American Heritage Month! In celebration, the Native American Awareness Council (NAAC) will be hosting events of interest next week, November 12-15. All are open to the entire IUP community. For further information about these events or the Native American Awareness Council, please contact chairperson Abigail Adams at 724-357-3932 or aadams@iup.edu.
