Belinda Russon, Australian Fulbright scholar, and Alex Red Corn, assistant professor of educational leadership, will present the brown bag seminar, "Making Space for Indigenous Ways to Knowing and Learning within Educational Institutions" at noon Thursday, Dec. 7, in Town Hall of the Leadership Studies Building.
