League of Women Voters Downeast Meeting
November 9 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The League of Women Voters of Downeast will be having monthly meetings on the second Saturday of each month.
The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 9, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth. The scheduled discussion topic is “Decolonizing Thanksgiving” with Maulian Dana.
We’ll look at the Thanksgiving holiday through Native American eyes. History has always been written by the winners – those who feel that they have won the right to portray that history in a light that waters down the consequences of their “winning.” However, by unpacking the truth we can all reach a place of better understanding and humanity. Maulian Dana serves as the appointed tribal ambassador of the Penobscot Nation, where she grew up and now raises her two daughters.
Lunch will be offered. A $10 contribution is suggested. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
