Tiokasin Ghosthorse

11/5/2017, 5:00pm at Atonement Lutheran Church

Tiokasin is from the Cheyenne River Lakota Nation of South Dakota and the bands of Itazipco/Mnicoujou and Oglala. He recently received a Nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016 for his work with The International Institute of Peace Studies and Global Philosophy and is the host of First Voices Indigenous Radio on WBAI NY-Pacifica Radio. He’s been described as "a spiritual agitator, natural rights organizer, Indigenous thinking process educator and a community activator." Tiokasin's new book Butterfly Against the Wind, with beautiful artwork by Jadina Lilien, challenges us to re-awaken our sacred bond with Mother Earth and expresses the deep wisdom of the Lakota culture and language that endures, despite tragedy and hardship.
