The Night Watchman
by Louise Erdrich
Based on the extraordinary life of National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich’s grandfather who worked as a night watchman and carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington, D.C., this powerful novel explores themes of love and death with lightness and gravity and unfolds with the elegant prose, sly humor, and depth of feeling of a master craftsman.

In the Night Watchman, Louise Erdrich creates a fictional world populated with memorable characters who are forced to grapple with the worst and best impulses of human nature. Illuminating the loves and lives, the desires and ambitions of these characters with compassion, wit, and intelligence, The Night Watchman is a majestic work of fiction from this revered cultural treasure.

Cultural Humility:
Moving Beyond Cultural Competence to Advance Equity & Social Justice, Part III
Amanda Florence Goodenough, 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Award Recipient
The Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council

Thursday, June 17
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
 
Cultural competence has long been known as the cornerstone for diversity awareness and cross-cultural communication. But its flaws and limitations point to a paradigm shift toward cultural humility, a framework for advancing equity and social justice by intentionally living at the crossroads of who we are, how others see us, and where power positions us within a system. On a small scale, cultural humility can enhance communication, foster trust, deepen connections, and improve outcomes when interacting across difference. In the bigger picture, it's a process that can radically transform workplaces and organizations. In this introspective workshop, participants will learn how to engage in critical self-work, identify systemic inequities, gain a deeper understanding of individual and group membership, and explore ideas for applying cultural humility principles into personal and professional spheres of influence.
