Shackleford Diary - Indigenous Peoples, Pt 1
In This Episode:
One of the issues I've grappled with since before beginning this project was how to put the Shackelfords' journey into context, especially with regard to Indigenous peoples. This episode is the beginning of a conversation grappling with what is owed to Indigenous peoples and how to include and center them in research, such as mapping Ruth Shackelford's diaries.

I acknowledge that the land on which I live and work is the territory of the Podunk and Wangunk Peoples, who have stewarded the land and waterways through generations. I also acknowledge the history of genocide and forced removal from this territory and pledge to use my resources and skills to promote knowledge of Indigenous peoples and to work towards justice.
