Looking ahead, looking around and looking within, this session will include a shared viewing of the film “Future Ancestors” followed by a facilitated discussion led by Kim Pevia, director of the Lumbee Film Festival in Pembroke, NC.
Indigenous scholar and poet Lyla June challenges the status quo when she decides to run for House of Representatives in New Mexico’s District 47. Future Ancestor follows her through a 7-day “fast for the future” on the steps of the Capitol building. Fueled by prayer and bone broth, Lyla is an unlikely candidate who reveals a new vision for leadership, urging us to “think seven generations ahead.”
