In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, the Intercultural Diversity Center continues the TEDTalk Tuesday Series featuring community organizer and activist Tai Simpson. Simpson discusses how the way we behave politically, socially, economically and ecologically isn’t working by sharing the creation myth of her Nez Perce tribe. Participants will learn how she advocates for a return to the 'old ways' guided by Indigenous wisdom that emphasize balance, community and the importance of intergenerational storytelling in order to protect what's sacred. This event will take place on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 from 12-1pm in the Intercultural Diversity Center (2100 Student Center).
