500 Years of Native Resistance: AIM, Standing Rock & Beyond
Join us for food, prayer and sharing as we host a discussion on Indigenous activism of past, present and future. We will gather for a potluck meal, before circling and setting our intention with a sage offering. StrongHeart, a Choctaw/Cherokee activist will faciliate a presentation and Q&A with our guests, who we are honored to have.
