Members of Two Tribes are the Future of Judaism
Join as we welcome the illustrator, author and educator, Emily Bowen Cohen, for a presentation celebrating the first day of Indigenous Peoples’ Month. During this program Cohen will discuss her own experiences as an Indigenous and Jewish American.
Cohen will use her own original drawings and comic panels to help illustrate the myriad ways in which people with intersectional identities are creating spaces for themselves in todays Jewish community. She will also reflect on themes common to Jewish and Indigenous American experiences such as the importance of places that feel like home, historical persecution and oppression, and cultural traditions. Cohen is best known for her memoir-style comics including her book An American Indian Guide to the Day of Atonement, in addition to several other published essays, such as My Sioux-kot and Visiting National Parks While Native.
