Porch-Sitting Special Event: Stories I Didn't Know
Wednesday, December 9 | 4:00 pm | Zoom
ALL are invited to The Porch for this special event! Stories I Didn't Know is a documentary featuring Rita Davern, whose family used to own the Bdote/Pike Island, and Ramona Kitto-Stately, educator and member of the Dakota Nation. Learn about their relationship, family struggles about identity, the Bdote/Pike Island, and more. It promises to be a moving experience! As we give thanks in this season, and think about who came before us-whose land we now share, how can we learn about and honor this land and its original people?
