Description: Dr. Michael Yellow Bird works with oppressed communities of color, particularly Native American communities, bringing teachings of healing the trauma of colonialism. Dr. King spent a great deal of his life addressing issues of colonialism on both a personal level -- empowering people of color to take part in their own liberation -- and also at the institutional level as he helped organize a social movement that brought about a new era of civil rights. Dr. Yellow Bird and others are currently part of building a social movement focused on decolonization. All people, and especially people of color, both indigenous and non-indigenous, will find what Dr. Yellow Bird has to offer is very practical towards ending colonialism -- particularly in their minds. This step is essential for empowering a larger social movement.
Dinner provided, 6 to 7 p.m.
