On April 22 at 7pm, Vassar College will host a panel discussion reflecting on the documentary “Conscience Point,” which chronicles decades-long resistance by the Shinnecock Nation to overdevelopment and extractive practices by their elite Hamptons neighbors.
Panel members will include Vassar alumna, Alli Joseph, longtime Shinnecock activists and Shinnecock Tribal attorneys. Professor Molly McGlennen and American Studies major Julia Noonan will facilitate the conversation. This “Earth Day” event highlights Vassar’s year-long reckoning with Native American land acknowledgment practices and relationship-building with Indigenous nations in the region.
This morning we talk with Producer Alli Joseph, Vassar Student Julia Noonan, and Program Director of American Studies & Native Studies Professor Molly McGlennen.
