Public Lecture: The Guide to Indigenous Lands Project

Location: ED 228 & Zoom

Join us as we welcome critical race, gender and culture studies scholar Dr. Elizabeth Rule
( ) to the University of Regina for a public lecture.

Dr. Rule has created The Guide to Indigenous Lands Project, an initiative dedicated to the creation of mobile apps that map sites of Indigenous importance. Guides to Indigenous Lands can be created for cities, treaty lands, provinces, ancestral lands, institutions, universities, or schools. She provides interested Indigenous youth and businesses guidance on how to adapt the app to preserve and share Indigenous history and traditional culture in an accessible way and bolster a growing industry focused on cultural tourism.

Rule’s research on Indigenous issues has been featured in the Washington Post, Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien, The Atlantic, Newsy, and NPR. She is also a published author, releasing scholarly articles in the American Quarterly and in the American Indian Culture and Research Journal. Her current work analyzes the intersection of violence against Native women, reproductive justice, and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

More than 100 public speaking engagements and interviews on Native American issues have taken Rule across three continents and to seven countries. Venues for such presentations include the United Nations Association-USA, the Institut des Amériques in Paris, France, the National Congress of American Indians, the Women’s and Gender Studies Intellectual Forum at MIT, the National Gallery of Art, and more.

An enrolled citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, Rule is an Assistant Professor of Critical Race, Gender, and Culture Studies at American University in Washington D.C..

Dr. Rule’s presentation will take place both in-person and online.
