Seventh Generation and Native American Futurism
Arboretum Fall Lecture Series
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Meet at Visitor Center, UW–Madison Arboretum
Patricia Loew, director, Center for Native American and Indigenous Research, Northwestern University. Many Indigenous communities have deep belief systems about protecting ancestral lands. The Anishinaabeg call it a Seventh Generation philosophy and it obligates people to think about their impact seven generations into the future. Loew (Mashkiiziibi Ojibwe) connects this to environmental solidarity movements as a way to think about past, present, and future. Free, no registration required.
