According to the FBI, Indigenous women are three times as more likely to experience rape or sexual assault than Black, Latina, and European-American women in North America (Perry, 2004). Historically, Indigenous women have and continue to experience both racism and sexism through the colonization of North America.

This NCORE (National Conference on Race and Ethnicity) webinar will examine the effects of dehumanization on Indigenous women and their lived experiences both in and outside of the University of Oklahoma. After a discussion centered on these issues, the presenters will discuss the implications that dehumanization has for Indigenous women inside higher education. The presenters will then offer recommendations for best practices when incidences of racism and sexism (i.e. dehumanization) occur on campus and how to support and empower Indigenous women through relationship building.

This session should particularly benefit those working with and advising Indigenous students (student affairs and academic affairs).

Hosted by: The Office of Multicultural Student Engagemenet (OMSE), The Office of Diversity & Inclusion, and Native American Student Organization (NASO)
