Evergreen talks at the Lord Mansion on Tuesday, November 12 at 6:30pm
Please join us next Tuesday, November 12 from 6:30pm-8pm at the Historic Lord Mansion (211 21st Ave. SW, Olympia), for the Evergreen Talks speaker series, a forum for Evergreen faculty to share their research and knowledge with the community.
Our first free public lecture will be given by Tina Kuckkahn-Miller, J.D., Vice-President of Indigenous Arts and Education and adjunct faculty. Dr. Kuckkahn-Miller will be joined by Senator John McCoy (38th Dist. – Tulalip). Dr. Kuckkahn-Miller and Senator McCoy will speak on “Changing the Narrative of Education in Indian Country.” The presentation will be an opportunity to learn more about Washington State’s national leadership in Native education through the passage and implementation of the Since Time Immemorial: Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State legislation. Participants will engage in discussions about the ways that re-indigenizing academic spaces and curricula leads to increased Native student success at the K-12 and higher education levels. Please announce to your classes and share widely!
Our second lecture will be given by Dr. Cali Ellis on Wednesday, December 11, 6:30-8:00 p.m. We are working on the schedule of speakers for winter and spring quarters and will be announcing that soon.
