The general public is invited for a talk and entertainment to honor the deep connection between the Lakota people, ourselves as Irish and the soil. The aim will be to raise awareness of the threat of soil degradation due to overconsumption and industrial land use changes, of mining, of fossil fuel industry which threatens us all. Indigenous people have a deep appreciation for working with the land, organic ways, and Mother Earth. There is a connection for many here too of the importance of the soil and the need to protect it. The aim of the event is to make those connections and highlight that we are all guardians of the soil and need to take care of it for all our futures. The event organizers invite the public to come and join the event, action and entertainment and support the message of unity in protecting our earth and its resources.
