Mark Your Calendars: Black-Indigenous Artist and The Winter Experience come to RIT
RIT’s Future Stewards Program is hosting two exciting events in February.
Meet Black-Indigenous artist, educator, and storyteller Deon Mitchell (Diné/Black). Mitchell was raised in Chinle, Arizona (the heart of the Navajo Nation) and will share her love of both cultures, along with her love of art. She will lead a virtual “Painting Night” February 18th beginning at 7 p.m.. This event is open to 30 students via CampusGroups.
And if you’re a bit weary of the winter weather, shake it off with some outdoor fun. The Future Stewards Program is also hosting the Native American Winter Experience. It is Tuesday February 23rd from 12-2 p.m. in Global Village. It’s a chance to learn more about Haudenosaunee culture, listen to Native American storytelling, learn the history of snowshoeing and watch a demonstration, courtesy of Native American experts, Michael (Washoe/Palute) and Tonia (Mohawk) Galban, of Ganondagon.
