SVM Book Club: Selu: Seeking the Corn Mother’s Wisdom by Marilou Awiakta
May 10 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pmFree
From Wikipedia: “Selu: Seeking the Corn-Mother’s Wisdom is a book by Marilou Awiakta. It uses poems, essays, and drawings to explore themes of unity and diversity. Awiakta uses the Cherokee story of corn as a “compass-story” to keep readers oriented throughout her lessons. The book draws on Cherokee storytelling traditions, the Appalachian landscape, and observations of contemporary society to provide “tribal-specific, decolonizing lessons”. She also uses the book to explore connections between her Celtic, Scots-Irish, and Cherokee heritage.”
