Native Teachings

Native Teachings
A benefit for the West Berkeley Shellmound Campaign

"Thousands of years of accumulated wisdom, practical knowledge, and beauty is in the earth beneath our feet and in the hearts and practice of Native people today. Meet some of California's most skillful Native artists and highly-regarded cultural leaders for an exploration of Native California’s deep past and living present."
-Malcolm Margolin, Director of California I CAN and Benjamin Porter, Director of Hearst Museum

Native artists and cultural leaders will share personal reflections on the value of the lessons they learned, how knowledge is conveyed, and the wisdom embedded in a variety of Native institutions, beliefs, and practices. To what degree is this knowledge transferable to mainstream America? In addition, a few non-Indians who have had long and deep engagement with Indian communities will comment on what they have learned and how it has shaped their life.

Panelists include: Jennifer Bates, Ron Goode, Frank LaPena, Malcolm Margolin, Toby McLeod, Vincent Medina, Benjamin Porter, Frank Velasquez, and Linda Yamane.

Presented by the California Institute for Community, Art and Nature.
