Geography of Hope Conference:

Ancestors & The Land—

Our Past, Present & Future 

 

As native people here in West Marin and throughout the world have taught us, we can best care for the land by knowing its history, by cherishing its stories, and by actively working to protect it. GOH hopes to stimulate a conversation honoring ancestral connections to this and other landscapes—whether Native American, European, African, Asian, Hispanic, or elsewhere—that will lead to dialogues between generations and cultures to help us reconnect to place and restore balance to Mother Earth. Conference includes field trips to nearby farms, ranchlands, and Point Reyes National Seashore as well as three panel discussions during which authors, activists, and other participants exchange stories about ancestry, culture, community, land, food, and immigration. We'll try to articulate how future stories—those that will be told by our descendants—depend in large part upon our actions today. For cost and other information, go to gohconference.org. Pre-registration required.
