Southeast Indigenous History Teach-In
Our friends at 7 Directions of Service have invited the CJJ community into continued learning and relationship building with the Indigenous community in North Carolina. 7 Directions of Service is an indigenous cultural heritage management and consulting firm serving clients for projects of all sizes. Crystal and Jason Keck are indigenous perspective historians, cultural practitioners, and preservationists. 7 Directions of Service has consulted at several Department of Defense locations, museums and organizations across the United States notably including the Fort Riley Historical and Archeological Society, Fort Stewart 3rd ID Museum, and the 82nd Airborne Historical Society.
Their monthly Indigenous History Teach-In Series is in collaboration with local Indigenous scholars and historians, namely the brilliant Beverly Scarlett, founder of the nonprofit Indigenous Memories. We are inspired by these free, outdoor educational events in popular public spaces across The Triangle to bring to light the true and often untold history of the land we are on, and to center Indigenous perspectives. Bring your lawn chairs! Click on this link here to RSVP for this event.
Some of you may remember learning from Beverly Scarlett in May 2022 at Down Yonder Farm featuring Batya Levine, Aly Halpert, & Arielle Korman in concert. Watch below for footage from the evening of music and community.
