In its sixth year, the Selah Series provides a BIPOC-centered storytelling space for community members to share the fruits of their ancestors’ wisdom, resistance, and survivance, and an opportunity for all of us to build community that is reflective of our collective strength.
Creation Stories
November 2, 2022, 6:00-8:00pm PST
Storytellers will be sharing stories of the creation of the Earth and the universe that come from indigenous cultural histories. From the Turtle Continent to the Popol Vuh to Mawu the Moon Being, this event is about reclaiming how the world was made.
Resistance Stories
November 9, 2022, 6:00-8:00pm PST
Storytellers will share stories of protest, organizing, collective bargaining, and community care. What can we learn from those that came before us? What tactics are we using now to reimagine systems? The road map to social uplift has been written, and written well.
Healing Stories:
November 16, 2022, 6:00pm-8:00pm PST
How do we practice care in our communities outside of Western, capitalist, white supremacist models? The focus of this event will be on the holistic, indigenous, decolonized wellness that targeted communities use to engage in healing. From naturopathy to indigenous herbalism to healing tones, the focus of the event is to honor ancestral knowledge and our special knack for survival.
We also have a culminating meal-share event on Saturday, November 25th, Outliving Thanksgiving, the Story of Thanks-taking. We’ll eat, build community, and BIPOC performers will share their gifts.
