International Indigenous Salmon Seas Symposium

90% of wild salmon have gone extinct and Indigenous Peoples from the Salish Sea to Russia are sounding the alarm: the cumulative impact of habitat loss, pollution, overharvesting, and climate change have led salmon to the brink of extinction.

But indigenous communities are fighting back: summoning the power and practices of ancestral knowledge, and building alliances across rivers and watersheds of the three salmon seas, to defeat proposed mines and dams which act as barriers to salmon runs and stand as monuments to colonization.

Join us this Sunday for a special live-streamed program of ceremony, song, and speakers from the gathering, organized by Se’Si’Le.


Day of the Dead

The annual days of celebration to honor the ancestors.

Throughout Turtle Island, indigenous people have traditionally honored the dead during those days when the door to the spirit world is open. In the modern era October 31st marks the beginning of this time which ends November 2nd.

Indigenous Peoples' Day Service of Reconciliation (Oberlin)

Settler colonialism brought genocide, disease, and heartbreak to indigenous populations. It also brought a form of Christianity which sought to obliterate the spirituality of indigenous people with forced conversions and threat of death. Truth-telling is the beginning of reconciliation. This service is one small part of addressing this history and legacy in our nation.
