Land Acknowledgement and Resources on Indigenous Louisville and Kentucky

The Thomas R. Watson Conference in Rhetoric and Composition takes place in Louisville, Kentucky, the ancestral homeland of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, the Osage Nation, and the Shawnee (including the Absentee-Shawnee Tribe, the Eastern Shawnee Tribe, and the Shawnee Tribe). Kentucky itself is currently home to tens of thousands of Indigenous people. 

Because the past and present experiences of the Indigenous peoples of this region cannot, and should not, be quickly summarized, we encourage all who visit this page to learn about these histories and to take action to support Indigenous communities.

You can find these resources here.
