This week brings Health and Wellness Summit sessions, an in-person book club, LGBTQ+ movie night, a volunteer opportunity, the all-campus career fair and more.
Monday, Oct. 11
2:30–4 p.m. Virtual
Join the Boulder Watershed Collective and CU Boulder Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies for an online panel discussion on Indigenous perspectives on environmental stewardship. The panel will present local and regional views on climate change; environmental and social justice; traditional ecological knowledge and cultural fire; tribal governance; and material, spiritual and political ties with the lands.
5–6:30 p.m. C4C, Abrams Lounge (third floor)
In honor of Indigenous People's Day, attend the screening of Two Soft Things, Two Hard Things at LGBTQ+ Movie Night. As a small group in Nunavut, Canada, prepare for a seminal LGBTQ Pride celebration in the Arctic, the film explores how colonization and religion have shamed and erased traditional Inuit beliefs about sexuality and family structure and how, 60 years later, a new generation of Inuit are actively “unshaming” their past.
