“An Indigenous Worldview: Connections between Land, Language, Liberation, & the Law” with Nazune Menka

Thursday, February 16, 2023 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

Is it possible to create and live in the world you envision? Even painstakingly small steps toward both self and collective liberation can be meaningful. Through a discussion of the connections between land, language, liberation & the law Nazune will share her experiences as an Indigenous woman, scholar, and attorney on a path toward personal and community liberation. She will also discuss the undergraduate course “Decolonizing UC Berkeley” she developed in conjunction with the Truth & Justice Project.

Menka is a supervising attorney at Berkeley Law’s Environmental Law Clinic and serves as Of Counsel at Rosette, LLP, a national law firm serving Indian Country.  She holds a J.D. from the University of Arizona with a Certificate in Indigenous Peoples Law & Policy.

Lunch will be served inside of Room 170 starting at 12:45 PM.
