A Celebration of (Up)Root(ed): Uplifting Native Ecology and Indigenous Visibility on Campus

How do we impact the Native ecology of the land we are situated on? What impact does the Native ecology of this land have on us?

Director Shawn Shafner and fellows invite you to join them in the Corcoran Flagg Atrium on December 8 to celebrate a semester of learning and action. Experience (Up)Root(ed), an interactive exhibit that allows visitors to touch, see, hear, and feel Piscataway history and Native ecology. For this special event, audiences will hear directly from project participants and from Anjela Barnes, Executive Director of the Accokeek Foundation at Piscataway Park. We’ll also taste some delicious local foods, and investigate together how we can plant the seeds for a more Native campus ecology.

Landing in Piscataway Terrain is supported by a Public Service Grant Commission from GW's Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service.

The project will be on view Dec. 6-12, 1-5pm (closed Sunday)
