The Legacy of Nicholas Black Elk

March 4, 2020
7:00 pm

Kellogg-Hubbard Library

Author and ethnographer Damian Costello discusses the life of Lakota holy man Nicholas Black Elk and his famous book Black Elk Speaks. He explores how Black Elk’s understanding of Lakota philosophy can help us see the natural world as a unified whole, and how Black Elk’s hope amidst great tragedy can inform how we approach the crises of our age.

Please note: This talk replaces the originally scheduled talk on Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater with Marlene Heck.
