SF Bay Area Free Event: Rebel Shamans - Women Confront Empire

From: Suppressed Histories

March 18, 2pm:
Priestesses, diviners and medicine women stand out as leaders of aboriginal liberation movements against conquest, empire, and cultural colonization. This visual presentation looks at how Indigenous and African Diasporic women draw on their cultural traditions to resist colonization --and how, by virtue of who they are and where they stand in the social order, their personal access to direct, transformative power makes the spiritual political.
