Surviving & Thriving: Perpetuating Oral Tradition
Salish leader Shelly Fyant and Rabbi Mark Kula will present on how they connect to the traditional essence of their people and feel actively connected to previous generations through the enduring power of oral tradition. They will discuss what it means to ingrain oral tradition in their communities intergenerationally, and to trust the organic shifts that preserve its vitality. We are motivated to provide this opportunity for the Missoula community by a shared curiosity, a desire to coexist with mutual understanding, to be active listeners and to hold space for one another, and to build personal relationships that create a foundation of respect and trust. We ultimately want to recognize that, if we provide the opportunity to share and listen, it becomes clear that our similarities are profound, meaningful, and more prevalent than our differences. This presentation and accompanying discussion will be moderated by Thomas McClure, Director of Health Promotions and Lida Running Crane, NCC LCPC LAC Counselor, both of All Nations Health Center. Many thanks to our program partners, All Nations Health Center and Zootown Jews.
