As part of an ongoing series of monthly full moon gatherings that explores and introduces seasonal moons, the gathering of foods, and some of the ideas and values that sustain First Nations Coast Salish peoples, this special edition of the course will take the form of a communal meal. All attendees are invited to bring something to share food, nonalcoholic drink, or a smile as well as their own plate, cup, and utensils. This course is led by Lummi Elder, WILLIAM John, X'welwelat'se.
SCREENING + SPECIAL GUEST: For this session, B R U N A is honored to welcome Lummi filmmaker ALTHEA Wilson who will be in person to introduce and discuss her film "Revitalizing Cultural Knowledge and Honoring Sacred Waters: Documenting the Oral history of the life on the Nooksack River."
This course is supported in part by a MAC grant from the Community Food Co-op.
Fee: Sliding scale donation $5-$10 per class. Scholarships are also available and no one will be turned away who wishes to join the class.

We acknowledge that the activities of Bruna Press + Archive take place on the sacred and ancestral home of the Lummi and Nooksack peoples. We are grateful for their loving stewardship of the land and its inhabitants, and intend to be good guests and neighbors as we recognize their sovereignty, rich cultural practice, and heritage. We set this intention first by making acknowledgments and then by practicing reciprocity. We are grateful to be able to share this space (both physically and culturally) with indigenous communities from here and elsewhere.
B R U N A is made possible in part with support from Allied Arts of Whatcom County.
