12PM – 1PM
Please join us via Zoom by registering here: kansas.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEucu-vqDItHdQslytih9adWETsbMW…

This session features an opportunity to reflect, in community, on ongoing events surrounding the Common Work of Art, Native Hosts, by Cheyenne & Arapaho artist Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds. Additionally, we will host an exercise in connecting to place, by examining ‘species loneliness,’ an idea described by Robin Wall Kimmerer in Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants. Through experiencing for ourselves, we will explore how we might know a species better.
