The Center for Engagement and Inclusion will host the next Soup with Substance on Wednesday, Nov. 10, at noon in the AMU, 157.
The event called “The Marquette Indigeneity Lab – Making the Invisible, Visible” is organized to honor National Native American Heritage Month.
The Marquette Indigeneity Lab was launched in the spring and summer of 2021 to support the experiential learning of Marquette’s Indigenous undergraduate students through high-impact, faculty-mentored interdisciplinary undergraduate research.
In addition to promoting respectful partnership and outreach with Wisconsin’s Indigenous communities, the program activated research topics that have significant implications for increased awareness and understanding of Indigenous history and culture in Milwaukee.
The participants will have the opportunity to hear stories of how student-directed research projects built a data visualization map of Indigenous Milwaukee, conducted archival research on Catholic Indian Boarding Schools and studied the potential for reintroducing wild rice seed varieties to the Menomonee River Valley.
