On November 2, 2019 Roe Bubar, J.D., Professor of Ethnic Studies at CSU is hosting a session on, “Living Indigenous Methodologies on Arikara Farm” for FCCAN. Arikara Farm is a small Indigenous hobby farm owned by Roe Bubar and Ron Hall. For the past six years Roe and Ron have developed an Indigenous farm to table Harvest Dinner Event each November. Students, staff, faculty, family, community members and the Native American Cultural Center have worked with Roe and Ron to plant, weed, harvest, cook and set-up a community Harvest Dinner event at different venues in Fort Collins. This project involves community engagement and collaboration that starts each spring and culminates in the Harvest Dinner in November at the Plymouth Congregational Church. Roe will be presenting a short power point on Arikara Farm and elaborate on how a reconnection to land serves as a source of healing and hope for others. And how the use of stories sustains us and how food has become medicine for her family and others. Weather prevailing, we will also have a small fire on her back patio which is often a way in which others come for respite to enjoy and experience the farm. Bring treats to make smores on the fire if you want otherwise Roe will provide hot tea and hot chocolate.
