Free virtual event explores resilience and perseverance across pueblo communities over the last year.
The School for Advanced Research (SAR), in partnership with Thornburg, presents Showing Our Strength: Resilience and Compassion in the Indigenous Southwest (hosted online, July 8, 2021, 2:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time).
While media outlets have emphasized the disproportionate pandemic-related deaths in Indigenous communities across the nation, Showing Our Strength shares a parallel narrative of hope and collaborative support focused on work that aims to preserve and uplift Native communities. Many individuals and organizations have worked to ensure that lifeways continued during the height of the pandemic and that certain life-ways and traditions are able thrive beyond the pandemic.
Showing Our Strength welcomes perspectives from a selection of Native-led organizations through a thoughtful discussion of grassroot programs that support community and that underscore resilience and perseverance within the landscape of the Indigenous American Southwest. Moderated by President and CEO of the New Mexico Foundation, JoAnn Melchor, the program will share what lessons from this last year have revealed about the future.
