Local author and Haskell professor Daniel Wildcat will round out the Raven Book Store’s 2023 event slate Friday with a discussion over his new book, “On Indigenuity: Learning the Lessons of Mother Earth.”
Dan Wildcat, professor at Haskell Indian Nations University, wants to honor Indian boarding school history by collecting oral histories of people living right here in Lawrence.
Haskell students, faculty and guests spoke throughout the week about what Vine Deloria Jr.’s influential book, “God is Red,” has meant to them. Many of the speakers touched on the collision between Western and Indigenous worldviews, experiential learning, and spirituality.
Dozens of Lawrence community members visited the remnant prairie behind Prairie Park Nature Center Monday evening for a healing gathering, following the city’s use of herbicide spray that is killing millions of wildflowers.
