Part 2: From Land-grab to Land Acknowledgement and Beyond
The nearly 11 million acres of land sold through the Morrill Act to fund land grant universities was expropriated from tribal nations, including 150,000 acres that funded the University of California. This event will explore current university initiatives with tribes and engage in a community dialogue on actions UC can take to address their responsibility to California Indigenous communities.
