Inspiration and Awe in a Secular World

Waylon Hedegaard

Spirituality is the center of so many lives that society often struggles to understand that there can be inspiration and even awe without it. Waylon will talk about how being inspired in a secular world is not only possible but is essential. Waylon Hedegaard is a Union Boilermaker and long-time atheist.

A Weed by Any Other Name: The Creator's Unexpected Bounty

Linda Black Elk 

Many of us believe weeds in our gardens are anything but invaders – taking up space, nutrients, and sunlight from our favorite fruits, vegetables and flowers. Linda will discuss how “weeds” enhance our lives and create a world that, when treated with respect, produces enough food, medicine, and materials for us all. Just in time for spring!

Linda Black Elk (Catawba Nation), instructor at Sitting Bull College, is an ethnobotanist specializing in teaching culturally important plants used as food and medicine. A prolific writer, Linda’s most recently published article is “Watoto Unyutapi,” a field guide to edible wild plants of the Dakota people. Since 2001, Linda has taught English, Mathematics, Native American Studies, Science Education, and Ethnobotany.
