WALKING BACKWARD INTO THE FUTURE
A CONVERSATION WITH PUEBLO INDIAN ELDER, LARRY LITTLEBIRD AND DR. GREG VALERIO OF THE BRITISH ISLES
7:00 PM | YALE DIVINITY SCHOOL
Niebuhr Hall / Doors open at 6:30 pm

JOIN US for a timely spoken word conversation with Pueblo Indian Elder/Master Storyteller, Larry Littlebird of New Mexico and Dr. Greg Valerio, founder of a Celtic Monastic community on the South Downs of England near the mythic Neolithic Chanctonbury Ring. Exchanging stories rooted in the ancient wisdom traditions of the indigenous Celtic people and tribal American Indians they illuminate historical layers of racial injustice, settler colonialism and climate disruption. Set apart by land, water and time, they offer a fresh look into our human connections, one to another and to God as Origin. Embarking on this migratory journey of healing and forgiveness, they ask us to join them in charting a way toward peace, justice and reconciliation.
