The Department of American Indian Studies at the University of Washington in Seattle is hosting its second quarterly series, Sacred Breath: Writing and Storytelling at its wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ - Intellectual House.
Storytelling offers a spiritual connection, a sharing of sacred breath. Literature, similarly, preserves human experience and ideals. Both forms are durable and transmit power that teaches us how to live. Both storytelling and reading aloud can impact audiences through the power of presence, allowing for the experience of the transfer of sacred breath as audiences are immersed in the experience of being inside stories and works of literature.
The event is free to the public and features Raven Heavy Runner, Ernestine Hayes, and Elissa Washuta as speakers. Register here for the event which happens on February 25, 2017.
