Indigenous Student Association Meeting
Thursday, March 14, 20246:00 pm – 7:00 pm EDT/GMT-4
Campus Center, Red Room 203
This club will be started to create representation for Indigenous students that are a part of Bard’s campus. Cultural representation has been taken away from us, and the spark of cultural appropriation hides the truth of who we are and what our traditions are. Bard has many organizations for other students of color on campus, each having their own unique identity. I want to give a place where there is representation for specifically Indigenous students on campus. This association is not only made for students with Native blood, but for those who want to help us break the generations worth of misinformation, to become educated, hopefully getting inspired to educate the rest of the Bard community. People not only should know the true history, but the culture of different Indigenous peoples. I want to give students confidence, to not be ashamed of their heritage, but instead, be proud of it.
