Institute for the Humanities

As a Native woman, it is clear to me that there isn't a one-to-one relationship between blackface and any other kind of racial impersonation in performance. And I wanted to know what makes redface different than blackface.
The Institute for the Humanities acknowledges that the University of Michigan, named for Michigami, the world's largest freshwater system, sits on land stewarded by Niswi Ishkodewan Anishinaabeg--the Three Fires People, who are the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi--along with their neighbors the Seneca, Delaware, Shawnee, and Wyandot nations.
The Institute for the Humanities
We facilitate work that examines humanities traditions broadly across space and time, deepens synergies among the humanities, the arts, and disciplines across the university, and brings the voices of the humanities to public life.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Institute for the Humanities needs your support.
