Native American Videos & Discussion

3:00 - 4:00 PM

Join us for an in-person viewing and discussion on the following two YouTube videos:

  • 3000-Year-Old Solutions to Modern Problems | Lyla June | TEDxKC
    In this profoundly hopeful talk, Diné musician, scholar, and cultural historian Lyla June outlines a series of timeless human success stories focusing on Native American food and land management techniques and strategies.  Lyla June is an Indigenous musician, scholar and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne) and European lineages.
  • Indigenous in Plain Sight | Gregg Deal | TEDxBoulder
    The indigenous existence in Western and American culture is narrowly viewed and accepted with little to no input from actual Indigenous people. Gregg Deal talks about the use of history as a tool while he navigates the restrictions thrusts upon his work as a contemporary artist while challenging those who hear his words to take responsibility for their knowledge, and create room for this nation’s First Peoples.
