Political Science delegation again visits United Nations
Associate professor of political science Glenn Morris is currently leading a delegation of Indigenous civic activists to participate and testify before the United Nations' Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. This delegation includes several CU Denver students, including Tessa McLean, Celeste Spink, Brighton Dawn Finger, Basim Mahmood and Reed Zephier, as well as alum Sky Roosevelt-Morris, BA in Political Science in 2013, who was selected to serve as a representative for the Global Indigenous Youth Caucus on the Global Coordinating Group for the upcoming World Conference on Indigenous Peoples. Morris regularly takes groups of students to the UN, and says, "Our delegation is making a significant impact here at the United Nations. Our delegation members are providing key leadership in both the North American Indigenous Youth Caucus, and in the Global Indigenous Youth Caucus.” Members of the delegation will be delivering the results of the UN work at the annual meeting of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA), in Austin, TX, later this month.
