1858 Historic Tour with Spokane Tribal Historian Warren Seyler

As part of our ongoing work towards truth and transformation - within and across the Spokane Alliance - we have a very special upcoming event for our members.  On June 29th members of Spokane Alliance institutions can join a tour led by Warren Seyler, a Spokane tribal member and an expert on tribal history.

This tour will give members a first-hand opportunity to learn about the indigenous history of our Spokane region and explore the legacy and ongoing impacts of colonization.

Several years ago, the Spokane Alliance created a new research action team with a focus on understanding the truth and ongoing impacts of colonization.  This was an essential first step for the Alliance to build right relationship with Indigenous people and communities and identify collective action for the common good.  

We were pleased that so many Spokane Alliance members were able to complete our first ever local training on “Wrestling with the Truth of Colonization” this past year, and to see the significant interest in further learning and relationship-building. 

This tour was made possible through generous grant support from the Empire Health Community Action Fund.
