Native Indigenous Peoples
The Native Indigenous Peoples website at Swarthmore College will provide important links between events, courses, programs and related presentations for and by Native Americans, Indigenous Peoples and First Nations.
These include talks and lectures, formative Land Acknowledgement, college and community programs, and recognition of Indigenous Peoples here in Pennsylvania and surrounding areas, along with revitalization of suppressed and erased histories and cultural achievements of Native peoples.
In academic terms, these include social change and sustainability programs by the Lang Center for Social and Civic Responsibility, and various disciplines, including Sociology / Anthropology, Environmental Studies, Peace and Social Conflict, Languages, Humanities and Historical Comparative studies.
We also endeavor to build a foundation on which to build college-wide programs – for students, faculty, staff and community members – adding Indigenous diversity in culturally appropriate ways.
