Harvard Alumni Allyship Series: Indigenous Peoples Case Study - Allyship Across Cultures, Countries, and Continents

Date: Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Time: 1:00 p.m AZ Time

Location: Virtual Event

The Harvard Clubs of Boston and Ireland in partnership with Harvard Clubs and shared interest groups (SIGs) from around the globe are honored and delighted to bring the next installment of our Harvard Alumni Allyship Series.

 

Following our successful events focusing on Anti-Racism Allyship (October) and Allyship with the LGBTQIA+ community (November), this month will be a case study in Allyship focusing on Indigenous Peoples.

 

This event will tell the incredible story of the relationship between the people of Ireland and the Indigenous Peoples of North America—especially the Choctaw, Navajo, and Hopi people. An amazing giving circle was started by a gift of $170 from the Choctaw people to the Irish during the Potato Famine in the mid-1800s. That life-sustaining gift is now being paid forward by the Irish people to the Navajo and Hopi people during their special challenges in the face of COVID-19.
