Alaska Teen Media Institute is based in Anchorage, Alaska. We would like to acknowledge the Dena’ina people whose land we work on. And in this episode we’re going to talk more about that.

Melissa Shaginoff, who in addition to being an artist and curator, hosts land acknowledgment workshops for the YWCA Alaska.

ATMI senior producer Daisy Carter spoke with Melissa about the importance of land acknowledgments, de-colonization, and further steps people can take to reverse the erasure of indigenous cultures and histories.

They spoke over Zoom on November 10th, 2020.

Hosted by Quinn White.

Music by Kendrick Whiteman.
