The next Ignite Bistro Night will be Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the AMU Lunda Room.
The event features the dynamic components of Ignite — engaging community, inspiring speakers, and prayer — plus great food.
Maka Black Elk, the executive director of truth and healing at Red Cloud Indian School in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, will join virtually to briefly explore the effects that boarding schools have had on indigenous communities in the United States. He will focus on the truth and reconciliation work being done through Red Cloud Indian School from Lakota and Catholic lenses. Mr. Black Elk will share some lessons this work may offer to students in their individual lives, as members of the Marquette community and as members of the broader community striving for racial justice.
Ignite Bistro will have limited seating and catering capacity. No pre-registration needed.
For more information, contact Steve Blaha, assistant director of Campus Ministry.
Sponsored by Campus Ministry, this is one of the events connected with campus’ celebration of Native American History Month. To view Ignite via livestream, visit the link in Ignite’s Instagram bio.
