This event is a fundraiser for Oyate Nipi Kte, an organization dedicated to the recovery of Dakota traditional knowledge & sustainable living, resisting colonization, and empowering people to strengthen Dakota nationhood. This will also be a conversation about decolonization and solidarity work. What can we do to unravel the active systems of oppression that began when white settlers first came to Minnesota? Join us for good food and conversation.

Waziyatawin is the author or co/editor of six volumes, including the recently co-edited volume with Michael Yellow Bird entitled For Indigenous Minds Only: A Decolonization Handbook (SAR Press, 2012).
