Recording of Words as Seeds. How do words shape and mold us into the people we become? When we think of words as seeds, we become even more aware of the intention behind words that are planted with positivity and those that cause harm. In this talk, you’ll hear testimony on the power of words and their impact on our spirit’s traumas and triumphs.
Join us for this session with speaker, Tanaya Winder (Southern Ute, Pyramid Lake Paiute, Duckwater Shoshone), for inspiring words, stories, and activities, as well as to hear Tanaya’s original poetry and song, Come Back to Me.
