Tan’si (greetings) –
Please join us in a Fall 2021 outdoor journaling series as part of Syracuse University Intergroup Dialogue Program’s Dialogue with the Land, Dialogue with Each Other facilitated by Ionah Scully (Cree-Métis/Irish, Michel First Nation), Ph.D. Student in Cultural Foundations of Education. A space and opportunity for Black and Indigenous people with other people of color to be in community in the land, this is a 3-session series to offer healing, community, and a reclamation of our relationships to land and other-than-human kin. In the series, registrants will engage in meditation, light hiking, and dance/movement activities according to their desire and abilities and be given journaling prompts to help them make deeper meaning from these experiences. A brief discussion will follow.
Each registrant will be given a free journal at the start of the series and, upon completion of all sessions, an additional gift of a hiking backpack and a book, Original Instructions: Indigenous Teachings for a Sustainable Future edited by Melissa K. Nelson to thank them for being a part of building this community together. Registration is open to adults age 18+ who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or other people of color. This program is made possible by a grant from the New York Public Humanities and sponsorship with the Intergroup Dialogue program. It is also supported by the Resilient Indigenous Action Collective.
