Learn about Nordic culture and ways to fight racism at “Norse Paganism and Anti-Racism”
All students, staff and faculty are invited to a presentation and discussion titled, “Norse Paganism and Anti-Racism”.
Norse cultural healer and storyteller, Kari Tauring, and Troth Steward of Wisconsin, Ethan Stark, will guide the group in ways to differentiate Nordic cultural and spiritual groups that are white supremacist from groups that are inclusive. The symbols of Norse culture such as Thor’s hammer and runes, went through an era of misappropriation to represent ideologies that are inconsistent with Nordic root culture realities. White supremacy has surged again in our midst from the attacks on the Nation’s Capitol to the purchase of a church in small town Minnesota. Learn some steps everyone can take to fight racism within Nordic root culture and the broader society.
This discussion will be held April 20, from 12:30pm – 2:00pm in Alumni Room 103 of the University Union. Snacks will be served, but feel free to bring your own lunch.
The event is sponsored by the Vice Chancellor’s Office, MESA, BIPOC RISE, and the History and Humanities programs. With questions, please contact Heidi Sherman (email@example.com).
