Sunday Assembly Detroit returns for its first assembly of 2018, just in time for a wonderful Mother’s Day special event.
We’ll have a discussion on women’s role in Native culture and a reflection on some amazing Native Women throughout history. Our guest speaker for May is Heather Bruegl, M.A., the Writer, Speaker, Historian, and Member of the Oneida Nation. Heather has a blog called, “Picking Up The Trail,” (https://www.facebook.com/pickingupthetrail/) and is presently writing two books, one on the Termination, Restoration and Activism on the Menominee Nation in Wisconsin, and another on a brief history of Native American policy.
Sunday Assembly Detroit is a secular congregation that meets to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life. It’s a service for anyone who wants to Live Better, Help Often, and Wonder More.
A member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, Heather graduated from Madonna University in Michigan and holds a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in U.S. History. Inspired by a trip to Wounded Knee, South Dakota, a passion for Native American History was born. She has spoken for numerous groups including the Salem-South Lyon Library, Shawano County Historical Society, Stockbridge-Munsee Band of the Mohicans, and the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. She has spoken at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for Indigenous Peoples Day 2017. Heather also opened up and spoke at the Women’s March Anniversary in Lansing, Michigan. A curiosity of her own heritage lead her to Wisconsin, where she has researched the history of the Native American tribes in the area. Heather currently travels and speaks on Native American history, including policy and activism. Refreshments / Meet Your Neighbors
