There are also a number of local events happening in October that may be of interest to you.

October 11, 2021. Indigenous People’s Day, 6:00 – 7:00 P.M. in the Sun Ballroom, St. Olaf College.  Reception follows.  Masks required.

The Taylor Center welcomes you to the Indigenous Peoples’ Day Lecture with Sarah Eagle Heart. Sarah Eagle Heart is an Emmy award winning storyteller focused on education and advocacy on behalf of Indigenous Peoples whose deep perspective is rooted in her life story as Oglala Lakota activist raised on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The topic will be about Indigenous Women, and how they are the key to organizing in the community. We welcome you to join us, and stay to ask questions and interact. 

Thanks again for your support of education and advocacy in our democracy. If you have any interest in getting more involved in our League activities, please contact Pat or Adrienne through the president email. We would be happy to meet with you.
