Tribal Broadcast Series: Developing Land Acknowledgements

Who Should Attend: We welcome any Department of the Interior staff and partners who are involved with tribes or who wish to learn more about working with tribes.

What is the purpose of, and how do you go about developing, a land acknowledgement? We’ll learn this and more in the next series of the Tribal Broadcast Connections!

Presenters: Crystal Leonetti and Melissa Shanginoff

  • Crystal Leonetti is Yup’ik and a citizen of Curyung Tribal Council, born and raised in Alaska. As Native Affairs Specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, she represents the Regional Director regarding Alaska Native interests, including government-to-government relations with Alaska’s 229 Tribes.
  • Melissa Shaginoff is part of the Udzisyu (caribou) and Cui Ui Ticutta (fish-eater) clans from Nay'dini'aa Na Kayax (Chickaloon Village, Alaska). She is an Ahtna and Paiute person, an artist, a social activist and the curator of Alaska Pacific University’s Art Galleries. Her work is shaped by the structure and processes of the Dene ceremony of potlatch. She has been published in the Alaska Humanities FORUM Magazine, First American Art Magazine, Inuit Art Quarterly, and the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center Learning Lab. She teaches about land acknowledgement concepts and other Indigenous leadership attributes.
