2-3pm: Igniting the 8th Fire: Modern Day Warrior Experience & Responsibility

Hosted by Deanna Standing Cloud. Native youth have a tremendous responsibility to carry their culture into the future. During our discussion, we will explore the legacy of colonization and how it has affected the well being of our families and communities. The multitude of issues in our communities all are connected to the 7 Fires Prophecy of the Anishinaabe people. Some of our youth do not understand how precious and powerful they truly are. I’m hoping with this discussion composed of myself, Charlie Thayer (another community leader), a respected elder and a Native youth will inspire our young people to wake up to the fact that they are tremendously important and they have a responsibility to ignite the 8th fire.

1-2pm: Rosy Simas Danse: Traditions and Transitions

Hosted by Laura Waterman Wittstock. New dance work underway about Indian transition from the traditional world to the new ways – sometimes conquerable and sometimes confusing. Composer and other dancers will join Rosy.
