  • "There, There" A Book Discussion

    There, There by Tommy OrangeFacilitated by Jordan Zickermann, Indian Education Program Lead, Hope Flanagan, Ojibwa Elder and WBLAS students.'There, There' is a relentlessly paced multi-generational story about violence and recovery, memory and identity, and the beauty and despair woven into the history of a nation and its people. It tells the story of twelve characters, each of whom have private reasons for traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow. In thanks to our Indian Education book acquisition, Native students from North and South Campus will be reading There, There. This is a strategic effort to further expose our students to the modern reality of Native American's in the U.S. This is in part, due to the fact that contemporary stories of Native Americans are not discussed within mainstream education. This results in the belief that Natives are historic and are not pertinent to current times. This is a reality our students are living everyday - a reality Native Americans are living everyday. Which is why we wanted to open this Book Read up to the community - to further spread the message that Natives can be Urban and live in cities. That numerous generations of resilient Natives are here!

This document should be discussed and shared with your loved ones and your primary care provider. Honoring Choices will present a an introduction to Advance Care Planning, followed by time for questions and answers to help people learn the basics of ACP and how to begin.
