Meet monthly Saturday morning - breakfast included.
Join storyteller Fern Renville as she shares stories both mythic and personal that reframe and highlight the history, present, and future of Indigenous female power and leadership in America.
History books do not reveal the Indigenous sources of inspiration that guided our Founding Fathers. Native alliances served as a powerful example to men such as Benjamin Franklin, who benefited from the political guidance.
But even Franklin did not comprehend the political and spiritual power held by the clan mothers of these matriarchal societies, who were instrumental to building and maintaining a peaceful union.
Fern Naomi Renville is a Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota, Omaha, and Seneca-Cayuga storyteller, theatre director, and playwright. This Humanities Washington event is cosponsored by the AAUW Seattle and Edmonds SnoKing Branches. Free online Zoom registration required www.aauw-seattle.org
