"The grand challenges course we took this semester was titled "seeking connection through decolonization: the power of indigenous lands and languages". In class we have explored big ideas of decolonization and land back. However most notably we have been asked to dive deeper and explore how colonization has impacted our own relationships to land and language. This project will explain how land and languages influence one another and will also introduce community members who are leading this conversation. Ultimately this project hopes to highlight how we can and must build communities grounded in respecting the relationships between lands, languages and people."
