LUNCH WITH A PURPOSE: SPIRITS OF BLOOD, SPIRITS OF BREATH: THE TWINNED COSMOS OF INDIGENOUS AMERICA

TUESDAY, MARCH 19 from  NOON – 1 P.M. 
Eberly Center conference room, TH 0152

Dr. Barbara Mann, UT professor of humanities
The philosophy of Turtle Island (native North America) forms a collaborative binary, viewed as a twinship of blood (earth) and breath (sky). Neither half can exist without its twin so both halves are necessary and good. Dr. Mann will explain the theory that the cosmos requires the halves to function in dynamic balance, endlessly spinning out in fractals, each replicating the twinship. Practical results of the philosophy include female/male parallelism, halved-whole iconography and the gift economy.
