It’s not too late to register!
Our theme this year is Indigenous and Settler Relationships to Land and Place. The adult program will be led by Professor Dina Gilio-Whitaker, who will also give the sermon on July 11. And Betsy Rose will be back to lead us in song.
Seabeck week is shaping up with some great programming for all ages. While the core adult (midday) and children’s (morning) programs will be online, there will also be some in-person activities. One will be a field trip to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center, as well as an in-person outdoor “campfire” gathering at church. There will be virtual workshops on writing a chant, crafts, and a discussion of the film Promised Land, about the Duwamish and Chinook tribes’ fight for sovereignty.
Children and youth will explore themes of environmental justice during online morning programs and optional in-person gatherings. We will continue many of our Seabeck traditions: talk-back time, virtual campfire, joke night, concert, and talent show and include opportunities for informal connections, especially
following morning meditations and evening vespers.
Beth Bartholomew will lead a Book Club discussion of selected readings from An Indigenous People’s History of the United States by Roxane Dunbar Ortiz. A link to
access the introduction will be provided. You can also find many copies of the audiobook at the Seattle
Seabeck is a volunteer-run event. We especially need tech hosts, but may also need helpers at the in-person events. Please reach out if you are able to help!
