(Formerly the Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community)
To speak and act on behalf of ourselves as a human, social and cultural world, we are required to speak and act on behalf of land, culture, and community. No matter who we are, no matter what our livelihood is, and no matter what our inclinations are, we are bound by a relationship to the land upon which we live, the cultural knowledge by which we are guided, and the community we share with one another.
The Simon Ortiz RED INK Indigenous Speaker Series sponsored by the Labriola Center at Arizona State University addresses topics and issues across disciplines in the arts, humanities, sciences, and politics. Underscoring Indigenous American experiences and perspectives, this series seeks to create and celebrate knowledge that evolves from an inclusive Indigenous worldview and that is applicable to all walks of life.
The Simon Ortiz RED INK Indigenous Speaker Series seeks to speak, act, offer, and share in order to assume responsibility for land, culture, community that is our world.
