Hannah Reynolds ’22 published an op-ed in the Daily Princetonian concerning the lack of resources for Indigenous students at Princeton. The article, Nuclear Princeton: Indigenous scholarship and representation in an institution ‘not designed’ for Native students, points out how the lack of discourse around anti-Native racism at the University is paralleled by minimal representation and resources for people of Indigenous heritage. Reynolds explains how an academic space called Nuclear Princeton was created for Native students to form community and bring light to the ways in which the University’s nuclear research has harmed Indigenous communities. Anthropology’s Ryo Morimoto oversees the student-driven project which involves archival and ethonographic research and interviews to connect with people both involved with and affected by the nuclear age.
