ALA Annual Conference 2021

Learning about Chicago’s Indigenous History at #alaac21

I always appreciate learning about the Indigenous history of locations I visit or in which I attend conferences. Since this 2021 ALA conference is virtual, the conference is “based” in ALA’s home city of Chicago.

I want to acknowledge the work which the the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services  completed in order to share information recognizing the Indigenous history of Chicago as well as their stated desire to “pay our respects to the elders and both past and present American Indian individuals, who have or currently do call Chicago home.”
