Faith + Works: All My Relations, with Dr. Margaux Simmons

February 19, 2023 4:00PM

The guiding principle of Lakota spirituality is that all life, animate and inanimate, is related.  We are all made up of the same stuff.  This is the guiding principle of Margaux’s life and the substance of her faith.  It informs all of the work that she does.
