The local university hosts the Indigenous Earth Issues Summit on Friday. It is a twelve-hour conference on environmental activism, featuring speakers, writers, musicians, and local activists.

Linda Hogan is the keynote speaker. If you haven’t read her work, you should.

Following is small excerpt from the essay, “What Holds the Water, What Holds the Light” from the book Dwellings:

“The water jar was a reminder of how water and earth love each other the way they do, meeting at night, at the shore, being friends together, dissolving into each other, in the give and take that is where grace comes from” (46).
