MUSEUM MONDAY — JACE DECORY
LAKOTA THOUGHTS ON EQUITY & ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

August 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Jace DeCory presents the topic of Lakota thought and philosophy regarding the outlook on cultural values and the environment, including climate change, sacred Lakota sites, and environmental justice.  DeCory’s presentation weaves these issues into a discussion of the concept of wólakota — being in balance with the world around us — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
