Dana Lloyd, PhD, on “Sovereignty, Religious Freedom, and Indigenous Sacred Sites”

In honor of Native American Heritage Month, please join us for an event to celebrate the publication of Dana Lloyd’s “Land is Kin: Sovereignty, Religious Freedom, and Indigenous Sacred Sites,” on Wednesday, November 29, at 3:30-4:30 p.m., in Falvey Library’s Speakers’ Corner on the first floor.

Land Is Kin demonstrates the complexity of land in contemporary religious, political, and legal discourse. By drawing on Indigenous perspectives on the land as kin, Lloyd points toward a framework that shifts sovereignty away from binary oppositions—between property and sacred site, between the federal government and Native nations—towards seeing the land itself as sovereign.

Panelists Elisha Chi (Theology and Religious Studies) and Ann C. Juliano (Charles Widger School of Law) will share their unique perspectives on Land is Kin, and author Dana Lloyd (Global Interdisciplinary Studies) will respond to their insights. Tim Horner (Peace and Justice, ACS) will moderate.

This ACS-approved event, which is part of Falvey’s Scholarship@Villanova lecture series, is co-sponsored by Falvey Library, Center for Peace and Justice Education, Department of Global Interdisciplinary Studies, and the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
