Native Land

We strive to map Indigenous lands in a way that changes, challenges, and improves the way people see the history of their countries and peoples. We hope to strengthen the spiritual bonds that people have with the land, its people, and its meaning.We strive to map Indigenous territories, treaties, and languages across the world in a way that goes beyond colonial ways of thinking in order to better represent how Indigenous people want to see themselves.We provide educational resources to correct the way that people speak about colonialism and indigeneity, and to encourage territory awareness in everyday speech and action.

Greenlight Presentation

Green Light

Our presentation is about our student activity club called Green Light - why we were founded, what we plan to do, what we are currently doing. Our club was founded in the spring semester of 2021 by Daniel Baik and three other founding members, Daniela Han, Kevin Lee, and Daniel Han. The purpose of our club is to try to save our environment by starting off with small steps within our school. We currently have an Instagram page where we post notifications for environmental events such as the Earth day and start Instagram challenges to save energy and so on. Our club aims to further improve our efforts by promoting donations for organizations such as Green Peace of Unicef and also hosting a poster competition in the near future.
