Dear Educator:

You are cordially invited to two free events the third weekend in October Sponsored by Past is Prologue (PIP): A Learning Way, and Schreiner University’s Center for Innovative Learning (CIL) this annual workshop shares timeless wisdom from the first written Native American oral history, The Walking People, authored by Paula Underwood. This year’s theme adopts the Hopi saying that begins with “We are the ones we have been waiting for...” It is we who must change our behavior towards the environment to sustain the lives of the seventh generation hence. Participants will learn what this ancient people learned from cataclysmic environmental changes, and we will discuss how those lesson apply to our present daunting environmental challenges.

All events will take place in the Hanszen Fine Arts Center on the campus of Schreriner University.

The first event, beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 17 will features the Native American Learning Story “Who Speaks for Wolf” told by Mobi Warren, an educator, and expert storyteller.

This will be followed by a general discussion, led by panelists who have demonstrated in their own lives their understanding of living gently on the earth.

The second event is a workshop on Saturday Oct. 18th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The morning session will involve relevant experiential learning through a Native American story. The afternoon session will focus on some traditional tools which are easily assimilated and readily available for helping us navigate through rapid environmental changes.

Earn up to eight continuing professional education credits/units by attending both the Friday and Saturday events. If you attend both sessions on Saturday, you my receive six credits For your convenience and to facilitate greater participation, if you can only attend one of the two sessions on Saturday, then you will receive three credits.
