19 May Water Is Life: Standing With Standing Rock
Friday, May 19, 2017 / 12:30 PM-6:30PM
Girvetz Hall 1004
Events at Standing Rock – from April 2016 to February 2017 – altered the media landscape, created new ways to protect the water and land, and launched a resurgence of indigenous centered leadership. Join co-founders of the first encampment of Water Protectors, organizers of non-violent direct actions, and members of the camp’s press corps for three panel discussions about the future and importance of ideas and events that emerged from Oceti Sakowin.
This event is presented by the Carsey-Wolf Center, the American Indian & Indigenous Collective, the American Indian Student Association, the Coastal Band of the Chumash Nation, the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, and has benefited from the generous support of more than two dozen co-sponsors, all of whom are listed on the CWC website: http://www.carseywolf.ucsb.edu/waterislife
Due to keen interest in this May 19th conference (12:30pm-6:30pm) we are asking attendees to reserve a free ticket to guarantee admission. Reservations will become available, one per person, at 12:30pm on May 12th.
