Earth at the Crossroads

This workshop will focus on the author’s research on the history of the Algonkian Civilization’s legendary seven fires prophecies, which is said to be an ancient prophecy about global warming and other earth changes. Evan offers his insights into the time period the prophecy was first spoken, compelling evidence as to its validity, and what it asks of us as individuals, based on his book Earth Atthe Crossroads. He will also discuss Native American and other solutions to global warming “so that we can light the eighth fire.”

How Green Was Manhattan

This workshop, based on the author’s Native New Yorkers (Council Oak, 2nd edition paperback, revised) will focus on the various types of sacred sites of old Manhattan, and how they came to be desecrated over time. Participants will create their own maps of sacred Manhattan circa 1492, suitable for framing. Then Evan will talk about how New York and other major cities can become green gardens once again, and leaders in the fight against global warming.
