Ekvn-Yefolecv Maskoke Eco-Village
February 4 from 12:30 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Ekvn-Yefolecv is an intentional ecovillage community of Indigenous Maskoke persons who, after 180 years of having been forcibly removed from traditional homelands – in what is commonly/colonially known as Alabama – have returned for the purpose of practicing linguistic, cultural and ecological sustainability. Designed as a holistic decolonization paradigm shift, residents of the ecovillage are manifesting an off-grid income-sharing community with natural building construction, renewable energy and more.
Information about Ekvn-Yefolecv will be presented by Marcus Briggs-Cloud (Maskoke), who is a language revitalizer, scholar, musician and co-director of Ekvn-Yefolecv Maskoke ecovillage. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, he is currently a doctoral candidate in interdisciplinary ecology at the University of Florida where his work intersects ecology, liberation theology, and linguistics. In 2012, Marcus served as composer/choir director for the Vatican canonization liturgy with for Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. He is partnered to Tawna Little (Maskoke) and they have two children, Nokos-Afvnoke and Hemokke, with whom Marcus enjoys speaking exclusively in the Maskoke language.
