The Way of Our People: Conversation with D. Richard Wright, Ojibwe Elder, 11/10
6:30 – 8:00 pm
Co-hosted by Gichitwaa Kateri Parish, Native American Awareness Working Group of the CSJ Justice Commission, and Wisdom Ways
Join an evening of conversation with author Donald Richard Wright, who observed and studied the ancient ceremonies of the Aboriginal Ojibwe in Little Black River Reserve, Ontario, Canada. Its ceremony maker was a 94-year-old Ojibwe-Cree who lived in the mountains near Edmonton.
Wright wanted to experience and research the ceremonies in order to understand “the fundamental cultural strengths of the Indian who became copious drinkers of alcohol,” he says. “As an aspirant to the Archdiocese of St. Paul, Minneapolis Deaconate Program, if I was to counsel the drinker, then my ministry became to know a little about these beliefs.”
Donald Richard Wright is an Elder of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe. He has been an alcohol and drug counselor for over 18 years, working with inner city Indian youth in Minneapolis.
WHEN: Thursday, November 10, 6:30 to 8:00 pm
COST: Free. RSVP to 651-696-2788 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
