Water Equals Life is Topic of Great Gathering Symposium

A thought-provoking benefit symposium of indigenous wisdom and scientific consciousness will be held from 1 to 5 p.m., November 10, at the Berger Performing Arts Center, sponsored by the nonprofit The Great Gathering. The theme is “Water Equals Life,” and indigenous and scientific leaders will collaborate to uncover solutions for one of Earth’s most pressing environmental challenges—climate change, and its impacts.

Presenters include a hydro-geologist and water resource planner, a curandera and ethno-botany scholar, a true-heart Hopi traditional and “cycle of life” wisdom keeper, a wildlife biologist, hunter, and tribal leader, and a master in climatology and American Indian studies. Two
uniquely qualified moderators will engage the panel and audience in meaningful dialogue about indigenous views of sustainability, new scientific thought and resilience in the face of change.

Participants will gain the insight to integrate knowledge between the modern truth of ancient wisdom, cutting-edge science and emerging technology for a sustainable future.

Location: ASDB Tucson campus, 1200 W. Speedway Blvd. Cost is $29 to $39. For more information, call 800-405-9791 or visit
