This year’s Nisenan Heritage Day: Changing Perspectives will explore subjects where we have seen great movement and positive change from the Tribe’s perspective, such as LandBack, Land Acknowledgements, etc. They will also discuss areas that remain stagnant or resistant, such as funding for staff and places of misinformation. They’ll talk about advocacy and being in right relationship, the importance of partnerships and allies in this work, as well as sharing the ongoing capacity issues and places that still need support. They will also offer pathways for how community members can take on self-education and pollinating what they learn in their own networks. There will be many important conversations that they hope you will come be a part of.
