Honor the Earth invites the Twin Ports community to the Feast of Indigenous Art and Indigenous People on Saturday, October 13th, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Peace United Church of Christ in Duluth MN – 1111 N. 11th Ave E., Duluth MN.
This light feast will feature sculptor Charles Rencountre and (Lower Brule Sioux Nation-Kul Wicasa Oyate) with Alicia Rencountre-Da Silva (Mestiza and Muisca) and a discussion about their sculpture project, "NOT AFRAID TO LOOK" - Making Art that Speaks Truth to Power
As the Line 3 pipeline battle looms over Duluth and the Northland, we have an opportunity to create a home for a third “Not Afraid to Look” monument, and in the process a series of community discussions about how we can come together to put truth and beauty in art. The piece could live in Duluth or potentially somewhere along Enbridge’s preferred route for the Line 3 pipeline.
Charles and Alicia will be in Duluth on October 12th and 13th to see about building a third monument with our community, to face Enbridge in some way, and to speak to what is at stake with line 3.
Please join Honor the Earth Executive Director, Winona LaDuke, local artist Jonathan Thunder, Renee VanNett and Babette Sandman to hear the story of this statue and lay the plans to create a home for “Not Afraid to Look.”
