Porch-Sitting Special Event: Stories I Didn't Know

Wednesday, December 9 | 4:00 pm | Zoom

ALL are invited to The Porch for this special event! Stories I Didn't Know is a documentary featuring Rita Davern, whose family used to own the Bdote/Pike Island, and Ramona Kitto-Stately, educator and member of the Dakota Nation. Learn about their relationship, family struggles about identity, the Bdote/Pike Island, and more. It promises to be a moving experience! As we give thanks in this season, and think about who came before us-whose land we now share, how can we learn about and honor this land and its original people?

Mark your calendar and look for links to the documentary and Zoom discussion on December 9!
