DC Talks Speakers Connect with Their Roots

The Door Community Auditorium will continue its Door County Talks series with “Ancient Roots: Connecting Our Shared Histories,” presented by Waqnahwew Benjamin Grignon and Pitaepanuhkiw Lucy Grignon on March 5, 10 am.

As homesteaders, the Grignons, of the Menominee Nation, have been reconnecting to their cultural inheritance through the land, plants and wildlife on their ancestral homelands. They recognize that their connections to their Indigenous roots come in many forms, including their language journey and the stories of their people. They will share some of their journey and invite cultural exchange with the community.

Door County Talks are free, but advance registration is required to attend in person. All talks will also be livestreamed on the auditorium’s Facebook page. There will be no coffee and pastry service to maximize COVID-19 safety.
