    How Can the Arts and Culture Address Climate Change?

    The UNPCC report released in the Fall of 2018 said that we had 12 years left to save our planet. A few months later a report said that the numbers were off – by half. The arts have a critical role to play in motivating, inspiring, and engaging citizens in every community, first by leading by example, second, by using community engagement practices to inspire and motivate their constituents, and third, by tapping advocacy efforts to demand change, and finally, by using the power of the arts to address the emotions that aware people are experiencing and giving voice to them so we can embrace this crisis and support one another to save our planet and ultimately, our cultures and ourselves. Lunch will be provided. Part of Community Works series. The Community Works series is sponsored by the First Nations Development Institute.

    Kayantla?kó - The Great Law of the Lotinuhsyu?ní

    There was another time in our history where again, our ancestors forgot how to treat each other and their world was at constant warfare and sorcery was rampant. Even cannibalism existed. Another messenger was sent here to put things back in order and from this the Iroquois Confederacy also known as the Five Nations [Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca Nations] came to be. In this class you will learn about this epic story and how the Confederacy is still in existence today.
