More Than a Single Story is a series of programs that strives to break down the stereotyping of people of color by celebrating their diverse voices and experiences. Founded and curated by writer Carolyn Holbrook.
In this More Than a Single Story event, Black, Indigenous and People of Color traditional healers discuss the traumas of 2020 and the role traditional healing plays in communities of color – from the changing needs of clients due to COVID-19 to the murder of George Floyd. Speaking: Ihotu Ali, a founding member of the Minnesota Healing Justice Network; Janice Bad Moccasin, traditionally and spiritually based healer from Dakota Lakota grassroots; Didi Koka, MD, poet and Medical Director of HCMC East Lake Clinic; Houa Lor, Hmong Shaman; Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother’s Hands; and Sun Yung Shin, poet, biodynamic craniosacral therapist and Reiki practitioner. Funded by Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality and Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
