On Thursday, October 17 at 10 AM, Gabe Galanda will reprise a lecture he gave this past spring at Harvard University, at his alma mater Western Washington University: “Reviving Indigenous Kinship Systems.”

Gabe will again discuss the acute need for Indigenous peoples to infuse historic tribal kinship values into modern modes and institutions of self-governance, particularly in regard to belonging.
