Have you noticed speakers giving Native Land acknowledgments? They say things like, “We are gathered today in native space and on the traditional lands of the Massachusett tribe” or “Before I begin this morning, I’d like to recognize the Algonquin nation on whose traditional territory we are gathering." What is the value of these acknowledgements? And how would someone figure out whose traditional territory they are on? Christine McRae, the director of the indigenous-led nonprofit Native Land Digital, can answer both questions. (Originally aired Oct 22, 2020).
