Native American Heritage Month Presentation

In honor of Native American Heritage Month, Dr. Quintina Adolpho and her husband Robert, will give two presentations this Wednesday at Utah Valley University.

The first is a talk about uncovering symbolism behind commonly overlooked cultural accouterments, such as: headdress, tipi, sweat lodge, and vision quest. This lecture is an effort to provide a stage to understand Native culture against the background of wisdom texts, ancient temple symbols, and patterns of ascent.

The second presentation will build on information from the first, focusing on reconnecting stories and ceremonies.

I have heard Quintina and Rob present on multiple occasions, and once even shared a stage with them. Based on those experiences, I'm quite certain these presentations will be outstanding.
