We invite all people interested in sustainability and environmental issues to join us for a screening of the documentary "A Plastic Ocean," which details the effects dumping plastic has on marine life. After the screening, stay for a panel discussion with University professors and other experts from the area about the contents of the film and other issues relative to plastic and the environment. Vegan desserts and light refreshments will be available, and we'll be promoting sustainable habits by handing out Planet Blue reusable bags, water bottles, and travel mugs.

Film: Two Spirits

The documentary Two Spirits "interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son with a revealing look at a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female, and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders." Snacks will be provided and a discussion will follow the film.

Indigenous Self-Determination for Sovereign Games

From Invaders (an Indigenous take on the classic arcade game Space Invaders that parallels imagined 8-bit alien invasion with the very real process of colonization in Turtle Island) to Thunderbird Strike (a lightning-searing, talon-tearing attack on oil consumption), Elizabeth LaPensée's games offer alternative gameplay from an Indigenous worldview. She will speak to these games and more with an emphasis on their intentions, self-determined design, inclusive development process, and community-focused distribution in the hopes of reifying sovereignty through games.
