Giving Thanks
Through Action—
A Native American Call to Service

A workshop with Evan Pritchard
Neolyth, 39 Glen Ridge Avenue, Montclair, NJ
Saturday, November 24th,[masked] to 5 pm, $25 RSVP

In this workshop, Mi’kmaq author Evan (Chipmunk) Pritchard, will discuss ways we can show our gratitude for all that Mother Earth and Father Sky have given us, through our actions. When we offer to help Creation continue, we offer our whole selves, wholeheartedly, and with real humility. It may start with words such as “thank you for all you have given me,” but these words lead to “show me how I can help,” or “show me where to begin.” From there the spirit of thanks-giving leads us to a path of action of some kind, where there are no words needed. Evan will also teach us Native American sign language, a first step for learning to pray without words, using John Mohawk's highly accessible "Giving of Thanks" as a signing project. We will learn the spoken words for thank you in many native languages and many ways to show gratitude without words. Register at Meetup.org/neolith or call [masked]
