NACHP Distinguished Lecture Series with Cary Waubanascum, PhD
October 28 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The UW Native American Center for Health Professions (NACHP) will host their first Distinguished Lecture of the semester on Thursday, October 28, 2021.
In her lecture, “This is how we show up for our relatives”: Understanding how Indigenous relative caregivers embody traditional kinship to resist the colonial child welfare system, Dr. Waubanascum will focus on her dissertation, which uncovered ongoing colonialism perpetuated by the modern child welfare system and how Indigenous relatives continue to reclaim and live their traditional kinship. Her work focuses on identifying and challenging ongoing colonialism and Indigenous erasure and reclaiming Indigenous lifeways.
