Old Mole Intern Sarah Summerhill reads an excerpt from her piece "Boundaries," recently published in Washington State University Vancouver's literary magazine, the Salmon Creek Journal. The essay was inspired by an experience in a Native American literature class last summer, co-taught by Chinook chairman Tony Johnson and Old Mole Desiree Hellegers, and in consultation with Lakota-Cheyenne activist Roben White. It included paddling in a tribal canoe. "Boundaries" explores how Indigenous ways of knowing are vital to mending severed connections between people in a modern, technologically advanced world.
