Channel grantee partner Cultural Survival, an Indigenous People’s rights organization, is putting on an event in Seattle June 11 at the Stonington Gallery, 125 S. Jackson in Pioneer Square.

Cultural Survival partners with Indigenous Peoples to defend their land, languages and cultures. Community Media Program Manager Avex Cojti (Maya K’iche’) from Guatemala will share stories about their latest work with Indigenous communities from around the world.

Channel has supported CS’s work with Indigenous women community radio producers in Central America since 2015.

Cultural Survival’s vision is to create a lasting impact in community radio and other community institutions where gender inequities exist, lifting up Indigenous women and strengthening the connections between international women’s rights movements and Indigenous rights. They will be introducing the concept of women’s giving circles to the Seattle community to be launching in the Fall of 2019.

Join Cultural Survival for a compelling conversation, light refreshments and an exploration of the ways they amplify Indigenous voices.

RSVP by June 5, 2019 by emailing Miranda Vitello at mvitell@cs.org.
