7:00 – 8:30 pm
Praised as one of the few non-Native authors who can respectfully bridge the gap between Native American and non-Native cultures, Kent Nerburn has lived and worked among the Native American people for three decades. In this special evening, he shares encounters, experiences and reflections gathered in his new book, Voices in the Stones: Life Lessons from the Native Way.
Experience a traditional Native feast where children are taught to respect the elders. Meet a young Native man and his father who use the power of ceremony to connect the present with the ancient voices of the past. Listen to an elder who remembers the time when his ancestors could talk to animals. In these and other encounters, Nerburn reveals the spiritual awareness that animates all of Native American life, and shows how much we have to learn from one another, if only we have the heart to listen.
Kent Nerburn is the highly acclaimed author and editor of fourteen books on spiritual values and Native American themes, including Letters to My Son; Neither Wolf nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder and The Wolf at Twilight: An Indian Elder’s Journey through a Land of Ghosts and Shadows, and The Girl who Sang to the Buffalo.
