  • Free water-saving giveaways

Presenters

Joe Galarza is a Xica-indio visual artist and musician raised in El Sereno, CA. He used his childhood experiences in East LA to educate at-risk youth on the healing power of combining art, music and culture to combat societal oppression and intergenerational trauma. Currently, Joe teaches art and music at correctional facilities, universities, community centers and emergent sites of collective action like Standing Rock.

Keiko Takioto Miller is a retired professor emeritus of the World Languages and Cultures from Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania. Born and raised in a rural “Back Japan”, she later joined her father in NYC in the 1960’s. With her BA and MA in French Education, she further applied her knowledge to teach Japanese language and literature, cross-cultural symbology and Far Eastern calligraphy. Her belief in cultivating meaningful language is deeply rooted in her childhood time spent in nature and practicing Japanese calligraphy known as Shodo, or “the way of the brush.”
