Sunday, June 23, 2024 The Invisible People: UUYJ’s Experiences with the Oglala Lakota

10 AM in Hobbs Hall

A multi-platform service lead by Youth Leader Ellen McWilliams-Woods, our UU Youth for Justice, and Director of Religious Education Colleen Theole.

Lakota people of South Dakota remain largely invisible to mainstream society in many ways.  Fifteen members of our high school youth group (UUYJ) just returned from a service/cultural immersion trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation.  Through music, art, reflections, and spiritual readings, our youth will bring beautiful Lakota spiritual practices out of the shadows and elevate the awareness of the devastating conditions on the reservation that are rooted in the historical trauma Lakota people have experienced.
