An Indigenous Way of Being

Tuesday, March 16, 2021
7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Alumni, Community, Faculty, Staff, Students

We are excited to invite you to join us for an exploration of Anishinaabe teachings and relationality around protecting the environment. Increase your awareness of Anishinaabe culture and traditions and how to integrate these into your classroom to support environmental education. 

Dr. Andrea Riley-Mukavetz, an Assistant Professor in the Integrative, Religious, and Intercultural Studies Department at Grand Valley State University, will discuss how information can be passed from generation to generation (the Anishinaabe way) and how it relates to storytelling and the use of rhetoric. Hunter Genia, MSW, a GVSU alumnus, will discuss how history shapes who we are as a people, and adds to our cross-generational and cross-cultural conversations.

This event is in partnership with GVSU's Native American Heritage Celebration.
