Webinar: Reflections on the Movement: Lessons from Tillie Black Bear in Celebration of Her Birthday

This webinar brings together long-time, nationally renowned advocates Karen Artichoker, Rita Smith, and Barbara Hart to talk about the early years of the movement to end violence against women, and the culturally centered teachings of Tillie Black Bear that continue to influence indigenous advocates to this day. The work of all three of these women began before the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (1984), so their voices bring a grassroots activist perspective that is often missing but integral to advocacy and social change.

Webinar: Women Are Sacred: Exploring Women’s Spirituality from an Indigenous Perspective

This webinar provides a rare opportunity to reflect upon the meaning of the sacredness of women. Especially, in the face of the impact of colonization and modern day levels of violence against native women, how do we, as indigenous women, experience, understand, nurture and protect our sacredness? What are some of our traditional practices and teachings that can help us embrace indigenous women’s spirituality to decolonize, help each other heal and revitalize our sacredness?

Presenters: Cheryl Neskahi Coan, Amanda Takes War Bonnett, Rose “Loke” Pettigrew, Lenora “Lynne” Hootch
