HIDC Acknowledging Land
Join us as Dr. Meranda Roberts (Northern Paiute) informs audiences of Land Acknowledgments and its role in and around colonial spaces.

Dr. Meranda Roberts, Ph.D., is Northern Paiute and Mexican-American. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of California, Riverside in Native American Studies. Her doctoral work focused on how several Native women basket weavers have used basketry to express their sovereignty.

Meranda is at the Field Museum in Chicago, IL as Post Doctoral Fellow for the Native American Hall renovation. She is working on curating stories that could be told in the new hall, as well as provide feedback on how the museum can work more seamlessly with Indigenous people. Meranda is dedicated to having Native people tell their own stories and to fix the inaccurate portrayals that people have about our communities.
