Keeping the Earth Power Coming--Native Digital Storytelling for Social Justice
Free program of Native American traditional & digital storytelling hosted by the Inclusion and Justice Committee of Antioch University's PhD in Leadership and Change Program and Duwamish Longhouse. Free snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.

In 1983, Acoma writer Simon Ortiz edited a collection of short stories by Native writers titled Earth Power Coming (Navajo Community College Press). In the introduction he writes, "it is to make sure the voice keeps singing forth so that the earth power will not cease, and that the people remain fully aware of their social, economic, political, cultural and spiritual relationships and responsibilities to all things."  Almost four decades later, a group of Native individuals will sing forth their voices and share stories (orally, visually, and digitally) about social justice issues we face as indigenous peoples today.  It is up to all of us to keep the earth power coming.

Featured presenters will include PhD in Leadership and Change students Brenda Manuelito (Navajo), Carmella Rodriguez and Nora Antoine (Lakota).  The evening will also include special guests, Deb Guerrero (Tlingit, Snohomish and Cowlitz), co-founder of Turtle Women Rising, and Roger Fernandes (Lower Elwha Band of Klallam Indians), Executive Director of South Wind Native Arts and Education Foundation, a small grassroots non-profit.

The PhD in Leadership and Change Program is part of Antioch University, which is founded on principles of rigorous liberal arts education and innovative experiential learning.  Since its creation in 1852, Antioch University has evolved from a small liberal arts college to a multi-campus university system with five campuses located across the nation in Yellow Springs, Ohio; Keene, New Hampshire; Seattle, Washington; Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, California.  Today's Antioch University is the legacy of Horace Mann's original vision, nurturing in their students the knowledge, skills and habits of reflection to excel as lifelong learners, democratic leaders and global citizens.
