”Different Knowledges in Silenced Stories and The Role of Education”
This symposium will ask us to consider non-Western or non-conventional ways of knowing (aka epistemologies) and doing (aka methodologies). Three activist-intellectuals and educators with ties to civil society will share their knowledge and experiences. More specifically, they will share highly topical, crucial, and current-day decolonizing practices that contest colonizing legacies.
Renee Sans Souci will share Indigenous Umonhon (Omaha) knowledges regarding reverence for and connections with Mother Earth. Lory Dance will share grassroots methods of working respectfully and collaboratively with Indigenous and other underrepresented communities who have histories of involuntary geographical relocation. Gabrielle Högstadius, based on her knowledge of Swedish colonialism’s history towards Sápmi and her experiences from the course ”Stories from Sápmi,” is going to have a conversation with Lory Dance and Reene.
Lory Dance, a Black American woman from Turtle Island (also known as Northern America/U.S. & Canada), is a scholar-activist, sociologist, educator, lecturer, ally of the Niskithe Prayer Camp and international speaker. She speaks on a variety of topics including educational inequalities, inclusive practices, Intersectionality, and how to be a good ally to persons/groups fighting for social justice. Lory Dance was the 2023 recipient of a University of Nebraska Chancellor’s Award. More specifically, she received the Martin Luther King Jr. Fulfilling the Dream Award for Community Service
Gabrielle Högstadius is a ”folkbildare” from the feminist educational center, Kvinnofolkhögskolan. She is interested in concepts such as democracy, solidarity (as in responsibility), colonialism, decolonialism, conflictive consensus, and justice. She is also collaborating with Sara Nelson Anyuru on the course ”Stories from Sápmi.” The course explores Swedish colonialism both historically and in the present, while also providing a platform to listen to the history and stories from Sápmi
Renee Sans Souci, an Indigenous Umonhon woman from Turtle Island (also known as Northern America/U.S. & Canada), is a teaching artist, lecturer, co-leader of the Niskithe Prayer Camp, and a practitioner of traditional healing.
