Akinomaage: Teaching From the Earth

February 20, 2020

The River Talk series continues this month, but will be held in a different location and day of the week. At 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3, in the French River Room 1 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (350 Harbor Drive, Duluth, Minnesota), Vern Northrup, member of the Fond du Lac Tribe of Lake Superior Chippewa, will present “Akinomaage: Teaching From the Earth.” Northrup will discuss how he uses photography as a tool to educate both himself and viewers about the rhythms of nature, the preservation of tradition, and the relationship between resilience and sustainability.

Northrup’s talk is being held in conjunction with the St. Louis River Summit. River Talks are free and open to all, however, participants will need to pay a DECC parking charge. Refreshments are provided.

The Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Minnesota and Wisconsin Sea Grant programs offer this series of informal evening talks about the St. Louis River Estuary.

Other River Talks will be held on April 8 and May 13. For more information, visit go.wisc.edu/4uz720. If you miss a talk, visit Wisconsin Sea Grant’s blog for a summary.
