Remembering and Reclaiming Tovaangar

Fri 3/3/2023 • 2PM - 3:30PM PST

UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library (YRL), Presentation Room 11348

In this talk, Dr. Theresa Ambo, Assistant Professor in the Department of Education Studies at UC San Diego, will discuss the role of the University of California in the dispossession of California Indian people across three waves of colonization. Focusing on Gabrieliño-Tongva and UCLA, Dr. Ambo will connect the present-day campus to the illegal seizure of lands by Spanish missionaries, the secularization of mission lands under Mexican governance, and the privatization of lands by individual owners under U.S. authority. Finally, she will broadly consider mechanisms for increasing institutional accountability to local Native nations and communities.
