NATIVE CONVERSATIONS: January 2018
Water is Where We All Begin
MONAH was honored to begin its 2018 Native Conversations series in partnership with the House of Songs Ozarks as we welcomed Gerald Torres to both the stage and the podium. Torres is an established leader and professor in the fields of race theory, federal Indian law, and environmental law.
A dynamic and multi-talented speaker and blues harmonica player, Torres punctuated his talk on the significance of water and Native resource management with performance, backed by local band Lost John and joined by Egyptian musician Ramy Essam.
