Perspectives: Learning from The Lakota #2

Monday, November 22, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Virtual Event

This virtual event is hosted by Washington University School of Medicine, Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

In honor of Native American Heritage Month we will be hosting this Perspectives discussion twice!  This event aims to help illuminate a more accurate history of our Indigenous/American Indian People in the U.S. context and understand how that history is impacting the present. Knowing that diversity, equity and inclusion work starts with awareness and understanding, we will utilize portions of a documentary about the Lakota people to amplify current day voices and experiences within the Native American community.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all Washington University School of Medicine sponsored events.  If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this event, as soon as possible. Contact the Washington University School of Medicine Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in advance at 314-273-2809 or MedDEI@wustl.edu.
