Sacred Instructions: Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit-Based Change

Damariscotta | Tue, Apr 24 | All Ages


Time: Tue, Apr 24, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Location: Damariscotta



Sherri Mitchell, Indigenous rights attorney, teacher and spiritual activist, will speak at Lincoln Theatre on Tuesday April 24th at 7 pm (doors open at 6pm). This free event is sponsored by The Lincoln Theatre in partnership with four local organizations that span issues of environment, social justice, and youth: Chewonki Foundation, Damariscotta River Association, Midcoast Conservancy and People United Against Racism. In the introduction to her newly released book, Sacred Instructions, Sherri Mitchell says, “I believe that we have the capacity to create a world that is compassionately intent on preserving the integrity of all life in a harmonious balance. And that the Sacred Instructions for creating that world exist within every one of us right now and are waiting to be called forth.”

Born and raised on the Penobscot Indian reservation. Sherri received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maine, and her Juris Doctorate and a certificate in Indigenous People’s Law and Policy from the University of Arizona’s James E. Rogers College of Law. Sherri speaks and teaches around the world on issues of Indigenous rights, environmental justice, and spiritual change. Her broad base of knowledge allows her to synthesize these many subjects into a cohesive whole, weaving together the legal, political, and spiritual aspects surrounding a multitude of complex issues. Sherri is cohost of the radio program Love (and revolution) Radio, which focuses on real-life stories of heart-based activism and revolutionary spiritual change. Her new book Sacred Instructions was published in February and will be available at the event.
