Indigenous Peoples endure even after experiencing genocide, erasure, rape, colonization, boarding schools, governmental violence via laws and policies, forced sterilizations, physical and violent removal from our lands, and so much more. We can no longer be invisible. We must invoke the brilliance, knowledge, wisdom, resilience, and experiences of our ancestors and act now, because as the Hopi People have stated, “we are the ones we have been waiting for.”
A Call to Men is offering an opportunity to join an online community for Indigenous men, led by Indigenous men, to talk about Indigenous manhood, and prevent violence against Indigenous women and girls. In these Virtual Talking Circles, facilitators will offer guided discussions to explore topics related to Indigenous manhood and create space to support men pursuing a healthy manhood and seeking to promote equity in their communities. Virtual Talking Circles will promote healing, accountability, justice, and liberation for ALL.
Virtual Talking Circles will be held throughout 2021 on the fourth Wednesday of each month starting on March 24 at 4:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT. Each session is 90 minutes. There is no charge to attend but registration is required for the 10 sessions. This gathering is exclusively for male-identified Indigenous people. Zoom video participation is required.
