CORVALLIS, Ore. – A new Native American Philosophy lecture series will start at the beginning of the spring term at Oregon State University and spotlight the work of 11 distinguished Native American writers, performers or political leaders through early June.
This series is sponsored by the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature and the Written Word, the departments of Ethnic Studies and Philosophy, the Native American Collaborative Institute, the Hundere Endowment for Religion and Culture and the USDA Forest Service.
“The project will provide a place where Native voices will be heard and carefully considered,” said Kathleen Dean Moore, a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, who along with OSU ethnic studies Professor Kurt Peters is one of the organizers of the project.
“Music, poetry, discussion and storytelling can help us all re-examine what we most deeply believe about who we are in the world and what sustains us physically, emotionally and spiritually.”
All lectures are scheduled for Wednesday evenings and open to the public and will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Gilfillan Auditorium on the OSU campus.
Lecture series events are as follows:
