We would like to acknowledge that CCLI’s partner organizations inhabit the ancestral lands of the Ohlone, Tamyen, Piscataway, Nacotchtank (Anacostan), Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo), Peoria, Bodéwadmiakiwen (Potawatomi), and Myaamia who have stewarded these lands for generations.

Join CCLI (Cultural Competence Learning Institute) to learn how museums can build effective and equitable partnerships with community organizations rooted in shared vision and goals.

This webinar will focus on the three-year Ways of Knowing partnership among Six Nations Indian Museum, Akwesasne Cultural Center, and The Wild Center, a natural history center located on the ancestral lands and original territory of the Haudenosaunee. This partnership included co-developed exhibits and programs, summer internships, and professional development training designed to benefit both the tribal and non-native museum.

During this session, you will:

  • Hear from leaders who have built the Ways of Knowing partnership about how they built relationships and trust, identified mutually beneficial goals for all partnering organizations and communities, and created collaborations based on balance and reciprocity.
    • David Fadden, Artist and Director, Six Nations Indian Museum
