Indigenous Language Path Engagement Sessions


In March 2022, Mekko Chebon Kernell and his family welcome the Emory Indigenous Language Path Working Group for a visit, conversation, and lunch at the Helvpe Ceremonial Grounds in Hanna, OK.

The Emory community is invited to learn about and provide input into a university-wide project to develop physical reminders and rituals on Emory’s Oxford and Atlanta campuses to honor Muscogee language and knowledge as the indigenous language and knowledge of this land.

Please join us for open engagement sessions with the Native-led consulting firm KAI and representatives of the Muscogee Nation.

The Muscogee Nation Teach-in will be an opportunity to learn from members of the Nation about Muscogee culture today.

RSVP is requested below.
