Monthly Meeting – Finding Humanist Thought in Indigenous Beliefs

October 14 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

There are a number of traditional Indigenous beliefs that are consistent with modern humanist thought. In this presentation, Donna Harris will acquaint the audience with some of the Humanist values presented, as well as the more traditional spiritual philosophies.

Donna is the current president of HAAM. She is also half-Indigenous, and has been working in the area of diversity and inclusion at her workplace for the last couple of years.

In the spirit of the season, we’re going to decorate up the room a bit for Hallowe’en. You’re welcome to come in costume (optional). We have some real Hallowe’en aficionados in our group, so let’s have fun!

About our Monthly Meetings

Welcome! Our regular monthly meetings are always open to the public. Come early for dinner, drinks, or just to visit. Our social and (optional) dinner time begins at 5:30. Meeting is at 6:30 followed by the presentation at about 7:00 PM. Late-comers and drop-ins are welcome, so if you can’t make it on time or stay till the end, don’t worry. You can eat during the meeting if you’re late – the buffet is open till 8 PM.
