Native American: Beyond Land Acknowledgment - Online Course


Classes for Adults / Community Engagement -
Winter 2023 - Adult

Join the staff from Native Governance Center as they explain what land acknowledgment is and why it’s important to go beyond a simple statement.

Expect an interactive and engaging presentation filled with real-life examples.


Attendees will be asked to participate in live polling through Mentimeter and a Q&A session. By the end of this session, you’ll understand:

  • What Indigenous land acknowledgment is and why it can be problematic as a standalone practice
  • Why it’s important to go beyond land acknowledgment
  • How to create an action plan that’s impactful, straightforward, and demonstrates your commitment to supporting Indigenous people
  • How to share the plan with your stakeholders and make sure it stays current

Native Governance Center

Native Governance Center is a Native-led nonprofit dedicated to assisting Native nations in strengthening their governance systems and capacity to exercise sovereignty.

We opened our doors in January 2016 in response to a need identified by Tribal leaders from the 23 Native nations that share geography with Mni Sota Makoce, North Dakota, and South Dakota. These leaders asked for an organization that would meet the increasing demand for Indigenous governance and leadership development resources in the region.

We work to meet this demand by teaching a Native nation rebuilding approach. Our on-the-ground experience and our deep understanding of academic research tell us that Native nation rebuilding is a powerful strategy for transforming lives. The rebuilding framework consists of five research-based strategies for strengthening Indigenous governance. Native nations with stronger governance systems are better able to use their sovereignty to determine their own future and improve their quality of life.

To this end, we’re working to cultivate a Native nation rebuilding movement; we envision this movement leading to a future where all Indigenous people can thrive on their own terms. We see abundance, restoration, community building, brainstorming, and centering Indigeneity as elements of this new future.
