Sunday, October 24th, 5:00 p.m. at the Leadership Studies Amphitheater (rain location: LS 126)
Join us as we lament the many deaths of Indigenous children and other atrocities committed at residential schools. This service will be led by Dr. Debra Bolton (Ohkay Owingeh/Diné/Ute) and area clergy. We welcome people of any faith background at this service, which will be grounded in the Christian tradition as we seek to invite followers of Jesus to confess the sins committed by our churches and recommit ourselves to dismantling systems that cause violence. There will be a follow-up educational event led by members of the Indigenous Faculty and Staff Alliance on Monday, November 1st at 7:00 p.m. at ECM (904 Sunset Ave) to help us all learn more about the wider context in which these acts of genocide occurred.
We will gather at the Staley School of Leadership Studies Amphitheater on K-State's campus. Parking is available just across the street since it's the weekend. Rain location is LS 126 (masks required indoors).
