MSU Denver Tedx and Anarchy
Two of our writing center colleagues present!
We are so proud of Matthew Candelaria and Colton Lee, for presenting at the MSU Denver Tedx. Their passionate plea for anarchy in all levels of society has been a major influence on the MSU Denver Writing Center's pedagogical theories. See what anarchy is all about!
The MSU Denver Writing Center wishes to acknowledge those who came before us and lived on this land, the Cheyenne and Arapaho. The Cheyenne and the Arapaho have both been displaced many times via US Government treaties. In 1851, parts of Colorado, including the land our campus sits on, was promised to both tribes. However, due to the incoming gold rush and White settlement, these promises were not kept. The tribes were then forcefully relocated from their land in 1867 to Oklahoma, where they remain in small numbers on reservations in the state today.
The MSU Denver Writing Center also recognizes that the creation of our campus, starting in 1973, displaced not only the working poor and immigrants living in the Auraria neighborhood, but also small businesses and industry as well. By displacing so many, this campus effectively moved or destroyed the culture, community, and tradition of this land.
We are fortunate to call Auraria and MSU Denver a place of learning and inclusion, but we also recognize the loss of so many different people for us to have this opportunity. We are grateful to have the ability to work and learn on this land, and continuously strive to implement practices within this meeting place that break down colonial thinking and its effects. As the most recent stewards of this land, we must never forget the ones who came before us or their ancestors who are still with us. There are many ways to support Indigenous peoples today, including the Cheyenne and Arapaho, at The American Indian College Fund, Association on American Indian Affairs, or the Native American Rights Fund.
