Next Meeting is Monday, June 5th at 6pm at the SEE House of St. Peter’s Church.

You are welcome to bring a dish to share — although it’s not required 🙂 — and invite a friend or two. It’s geared to be a great community-building get-together.

Here are some announcements from our last meeting:
  1. We have available a written summary of “How to Testify” on topics that are important to you (by Beth Short-Rhoads).
  2. June is PRIDE month. Folks who are interested in helping out with Pride Month can email Willa Johnson at The PRIDE month events calendar will be coming out soon; you can follow Sitka Pride on Facebook for more information.
  3. Look for the May-June lecture series “Raven as Trickster & Cultural Hero” by traditional storytellers of the Tlingit and Tsimshian, hosted by Sealaska Heritage. (David Kanosh will be the storyteller on May 23rd). See attached poster. 
  4. Please see attached posters about PRIDE month activities and volunteer opportunities, Book Club, and Hope Coalition. 
Hope to see you in June!

This is a group that is always changing depending on who comes to the meetings. We would love to hear from everyone! For the last few meetings, we have been eating first, then gathering as a group for a short time before splitting into “breakout groups” which are smaller groups (less than 10 people) to allow for more discussion and more voices to be heard. Topics can include education, gathering resources for an upcoming event, putting our brains to an action item, testing out an idea and wanting input from others, or an activity (learning how to do something).  If you have a topic or idea related to decolonization, please let us know. Especially if you want to host a session. We are always looking for people and it is good to get diverse representation. 

After our breakout sessions, we have been getting back together for announcements. If you have an event you want to promote, you can talk about it at the meeting and also email us any information you have. We can share it with the group via email; our email list goes out to approximately 140 Sitkans.

If you are interested in getting more involved with the Planning Group, please let us know. We know we would benefit from your leadership! Gunalcheesh! We meet once a month via zoom to set the agenda for the following meeting.
