Rematriation is an Indigenous women-led movement happening across Turtle Island and Indigenous spaces, that includes historical truth telling, cultural revitalization, food sovereignty, water protection, land back and community healing. Michelle Schenandoah is an inspirational speaker, writer, thought leader and traditional member of the Onʌyota':aka (Oneida) Nation Wolf Clan of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. She is the founder of Rematriation Magazine. Raised in a family of traditional leadership, she carries the values and responsibilities of being a Haudenosaunee woman throughout her life.
This talk will explore these actions and provide an opportunity for participant discussion.
This program is made possible with the support of our Co-Sponsor and a grant from the Indian Affairs Committee, NY Yearly Meeting.
