Recap: Mujerista Symposium - Spring 2022

Watch recordings featuring guest speakers Rt. Rev. Dr. Carol J. Gallagher and Dr. Cecilia Titizano

On March 31, Princeton Theological Seminary’s Office of Multicultural Relations, En Conjunto: A Latinx Student Collaborative, and other student organizations presented a Mujerista Symposium on transformative gratitude. Inspired by Robin Wall Kimmerer’s book, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, the event explored gratitude and the questions “How can we continue to hoard unjustly when we are steeped in appreciation for the freely given gifts of God? How can we not offer our gifts in return to the land and to one another when we witness daily to the abundance and generosity of every other created thing?”

The event featured guest speakers Rt. Rev. Dr. Carol J. Gallagher and Dr. Cecilia Titizano. Dr. Gallagher brought her mother’s Tear Dress and shared the Cherokee tradition creation story and its threads with her own journey to ministry. Dr. Titizano opened by inviting folks to engage in Sentipensando or “feeling thinking” as she shared many Qulla terms and concepts while addressing reciprocity, community, and theological metaphysics.
