On Native Lands: Indigenous Histories, Environmental Justice, and Contemporary Challenges

 
The 2019 Bellarmine Forum celebrates the life of the mind in relation to LMU's mission and heritage. This year's theme, "Los Angeles: A Place for the Future" is woven into BCLA's fall course offerings and will be animated at events throughout the year. The first event is "On Native Lands: Indigenous Histories, Environmental Justice, and Contemporary Challenges."

Playa Vista is imagined as a creative-tech community and model of new urban living, but this neighborhood is built on the Ballona Wetlands and, like Los Angeles in general, the ancestral homelands of the Gabrielino-Tongva people. Join us for a panel exploring the regions' indigenous and environmental histories and how they shape its future.

Speakers:
Dina Gilio-Whitaker, Journalist, Author, and Adjunct Professor of American Indian Studies, California State University San Marcos
Edgar Perez, Member of the Gabrielino-Tongva Nation
Traci Voyles, Associate Professor and Chair of Women's and Gender Studies, LMU
Nicolas Rosenthal, Associate Professor of History, LMU

Panel discussion moderated by Elizabeth Drummond, Associate Professor and Chair of History, LMU

Tuesday, September 17 at 5:00pm

Ahmanson Auditorium
