Firewater: An evening with Harold Johnson
Thursday, December 1st 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Firewater: How Alcohol Is Killing My People (And Yours): In this passionate call to action, Harold Johnson looks at the devastating impact alcohol has had on his people. Using traditional stories, spirituality, and modern medical research to take on the stereotype of the “lazy, drunken Indian,” Johnson creates a new narrative of sobriety for his people. Powerful testimonials from Richard Van Camp and Tracey Lindberg are included. Written in plain, frank language, Firewater speaks to anyone struggling with addiction.
This is a free event. Complimentary parking is available in Lot 12.
