Remember Her: We Are Still Singing

Where do our stories take root? Everything our ancestors have done had purpose and meaning; we can help that meaning live on in our continual practice of lessons we’ve been taught, ceremonies we’ve been gifted, and songs and stories we carry in our hearts.

Indigenous women are the backbone to any community. Many of our matriarchs have endured Industrial Schools, relocation, and the desolation of reservations and still created magic by making food, weaving baskets, and by storying our survival. Because of the strength of Indigenous women in our lineage, there are songs we all still carry. Some songs have been passed down for generations through tradition or ceremony; blood memory. Other songs are landmarks in the map of my memory; the lyrics and melodies remind us who we are. Some songs and stories have yet to be written, but we are always one song away from the next destination. How can we translate this ancestral knowledge into an every day practice? This talk will discuss how stories, songs, and ceremonies can serve as seeds to create the food that nurtures and heals the flooding of our internal heartscapes. Poetry and performance will be used to explore how the art of remembering can allow us to re-member – put ourselves back together after rupture and hold our hearts together throughout our journeys on this earth.

Chat & Chew: "Carrying it All: A discussion on balancing advocacy and self-care as a Black American" @ MSA Suite (Talley 4261)

Bring your lunch and join the Counseling Center and Multicultural Student Affairs for “Carrying it All”! As Black Americans continue the fight for equity through their activism it is important to recognize the responsibility and challenges that come along the way. In this discussion, we will focus on different ways students can advocate for themselves and others. We will also spend time discussing strategies for finding a balance between advocacy and self-care practices. Students are encouraged to identify what it means to be an advocate, both on a micro and macro level, and ways to practice self-care as it relates to this role. This discussion aims to provide a space for students to share their experiences, provide support to others, and learn additional ways that they can care for themselves during times of stress.
