"Living Voices" talk at Whatcom CC on the experience of Native Americans in 1930s

Whatcom Community College hosts “Living Voices,” a presentation by Lily Gladstone, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the college’s Syre Auditorium, 237 W. Kellogg Road.

“Living Voices” is a performing arts troupe that, according to its website, “brings life to history” by putting on one-man and one-woman presentations about historical events of cultural significance. Gladstone’s performance combines theater, video and live interaction about Alice Benally, a Navajo girl forced by the U.S. government to attend a government boarding school alongside other young natives in the 1930s. Gladstone is a Native American of Blackfoot and Nez Perce descent.

Discussion follows. The event includes mature content. More on the program: livingvoices.org.
