Voices Envisioned in 2022-2023

Monday, November 7
Oakwood Secondary Campus Community Room

Oakwood welcomes the Tripp Allen Family and Tayshu Bommelyn for a screening and discussion of Long Line of Ladies, a new documentary about their daughter’s Ihuk (flower dance) ceremony. This coming-of-age film was featured at the Sundance Film Festival and showcases the beauty and significance of traditions and transitions in the native Karuk tribe. The ideas they introduce invite us into relationship with our external community and each other within our community.

Oakwood students, families, and staff are invited to engage in our school theme, considering ideas of transformation, and seeking to interrupt dominant culture norms as an act of practicing justice.

Long Line of Ladies is directed by Rayka Zehtabchi and Shaandiin Tome, and made in association with The Pad Project.

Now in its 16th year, Voices Envisioned is a speaker series for the entire Oakwood community to engage in dialogue about important issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and racial & social justice.
