Navajo Horse as Healer and Educator

Part of the 2019 SBS Downtown Lecture Series: Animalities
Speaker: Kelsey John

Inspired by her own experiences riding and training Navajo horses, Kelsey John, a postdoctoral fellow in American Indian Studies, reveals how horses teach us to relate to each other, the land, and other nonhuman animals.
