NOVEMBER 15

6:00 p.m., Bill Miller presents “The Red Road to Victory” (Weld Auditorium). Bill will give a brief review of his Mohican tribal history, an intimate look into his native culture, and will share three personal stories. Bill’s journey from victim to victory is charted and he illustrates the wisdom of “the twelve feathers of healing” to model his vision of transformation through reconciliation. Bill illustrates the relationship between majority and minority cultures, the ineffectual result of teaching tolerance and assimilation, and instead promotes a redemptive culture of understanding and peace.
