Indigenous Spirit on Fire, Spirituality, and Activism.

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

April 10 from 6:00-8:00 PM in the Wells Fargo Auditorium in the UNR Knowledge Center, a panel of community members will discuss spirituality from Idle No More, to Standing Rock, to the recent Reno Women’s March. This community event will inspire and fan our fires to continue our efforts to protect the sacred. Join us for an evening sharing food, songs, and speakers honoring all of our protectors of the sacred. The event's title is:  Indigenous Spirit on Fire, Spirituality, and Activism.

The panel of speakers includes Chase Iron Eyes (Lakota Law Project), Fawn Douglas (Protect Bears Ears), Jolie Varela (Indigenous Women Hike), Michon R. Eben, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer at the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, and Autumn Harry, activist and graduate from UNR with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science.  The speakers will discuss self-determination, treaty rights, and the role of spirit in our movements. This event will honor and celebrate our ancient roots, our cultures, our collective rights, and responsibilities to our future generations.
