Indigenous Connections to the Earth

On Thursday, January 20th, the Social Justice in Action Club will be presenting a panel comprised of Owen Oliver of the Quinault and Isleta Pueblo tribes and Joseph Aleck of the Swinomish, Tulalip, and Tiago-o-qui-ant tribe. In this panel, we are meant to hear about Oliver and Aleck’s lived experience, their connection to the land. Additionally, we will be presenting the story that is soon to be available to us at North Seattle, Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. We hope you will join us!
