Cultural Continuation and Sustainability on the Sea Islands of the Gullah/Geechee

Monday, May 8, at 11:00am
R-380 Learning & Environmental Sciences, St. Paul Campus

Free and open to the public

This interactive discussion with Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation and Elder Carlie Towne of the Gullah/Geechee Angel Network will focus on the components of cultural continuation that are often left out of the discussions of sustainability and adaptation. The traditional knowledge and collective consciousness of the Gullah/Geechee and how they are incorporating this in methods to protect tangible resources and their cultural heritage for future generations will be central to the dialogue.

Cosponsored by the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change and the Institute on the Environment. To request a disability-related accommodation, please contact the IAS (ias@umn.edu 612-626-5054) at least two weeks prior to the event.
