A couple things this week.
First, a reminder. Tonight we are celebrating Native American Heritage Month with a talk by Ron Kanutski. Ron is of Ojibway and Cree roots and is from the Bear Clan. Ron Kanutski is a cultural teacher, group facilitator, comedian, and musician who is a long-term resident of Thunder Bay ON. I know Ron from my time being involved with Midwest SOARRING Foundation (Save Our Ancestors Resources and Remains Indiginous Network Group). I participated in a talking circle that Ron facilitated. He is funny, enlightening, and brilliant. I highly recommend you attend! Link further on in the enews.
I know that originally we were going to celebrate this month with Bill Buchholtz. Bill was unable to make it because his sister requested he attend a water symposium at the Lac Courte Orielle reservation, discussing ways to protect indigenous and sacred waterways. This is important work, and of course I understood why he needed to change his plans. I know that we will have a lovely time with Ron, as we would have with Bill.
