Part 1: Unearthing Indigenous Land Dispossession in the Founding of the University of California
The nearly 11 million acres of land sold through the Morrill Act to fund land grant universities was expropriated from tribal nations. This event examines the 150,000 acres of Indigenous land that funded UC, how this expropriation is intricately tied to California’s unique history of Native dispossession and genocide, and how UC continues to benefit from this wealth accumulation today.
