Frank Talks: All My Relations: Indigenous Thinking in Seven Generations

Event Type: Adult
Age Group(s): Adults, Adults
Date: 11/19/2020
Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Time: 5:00 PM
 Join us for a discussion with Rowdy Duncan from FRANK Talks sponsored by AZ Humanities, about who you consider your family and who is a part of your community? Is there a way to widen our perspective of who is part of our community and invested in our success. This workshop will introduce the idea of thinking in seven generations and examine the concept used in indigenous circles “All my relations”. What if we could learn to see in a more timeless frame? How we view the world, and the contributions of others, can be shaped by who we are “connected” to, and who we are “disconnected” from. The choices we make about how we choose to live, and what matters to us, have much to do with the world we live in, and the people who surround us, at home, at work, and at play. Who is your “tribe?” Can you trace your family roots back to the beginning? Do we have any obligation to those who came before us, or who come after us? What is our responsibility for making a better world? Participants will explore these questions in a unique, interactive program that will improve their communication skills, facilitate learning, and help them navigate cultural differences at work and at home. Registration is required.
