[  ]   Native American West; A New Lens;  Lochsa Lodge Winter Retreat 2017
This retreat will give you a chance to read really remarkable books by and about American Indian history, spirituality, sovereignty, and a view of life distinct from the mainstream of American civilization.  In view of the renewal of the "Indian Wars" in the American West, most recently on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in ND, conversations will be rich, nuanced, rigorous, civil, potentially life-changing, and at times troubling.  In the heart of Nez Perce country each afternoon offers a chance to explore this beautiful landscape adjacent to the Lochsa River, (means "rough-water" in Nez Perce), a tame, slow, meandering river in the winter, or join optional activities prepared each day for group fun.                        (All-inclusive. except airfare) 5 nights
                                                                                                                                 (5 nts cabin stays)
