“We Are All Related” Livestream Event with Diane Wilson
September 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25.00
Livestream Event with Diane Wilson, award winning author of the novel, The Seed Keeper. Join us for reflection and participation on the relationship between humans, other animals, trees, plants, and all Earth elements through the indigenous principle “we are all related.”
This event is in collaboration with Community of Communities which includes several retreat centers across the United States.
Diane Wilson (Dakota) is a writer, speaker, and editor, who has published two award-winning books, as well as essays in numerous publications. Her new novel, The Seed Keeper, was published by Milkweed Editions in March 2021. Weaving together the voices of four indelible women, The Seed Keeper is a beautifully told story of reawakening, of remembering our original relationship to the seeds and, through them, to our ancestors. Diane is involved in food sovereignty work, especially around indigenous seeds, for the past 15+ years. She worked for Dream of Wild Health, a MN Native-led non-profit farm, as the Executive Director for 11 years. Then transitioned to the Native American Food Sovereignty Alliance, a national coalition of Native communities, tribes and organizations working to rebuild indigenous food systems, as the Executive Director for the past two years. For her, this work is intertwined throughout her writing, even in fiction, which allows her to bring a broad understanding to these issues. Wilson is a Mdewakanton descendant, enrolled on the Rosebud Reservation.
