MURA Breakfast Meeting, September 12, 2023

Breakfast Tuesday, September 12, 2023

President’s Message regarding price increase:  Last year we were able to hold the line on the cost of our breakfast sessions, but we were notified that cost per attendee will go up by $2.50 ($17.50 total). Therefore, we have no choice but to pass this on to those of you who attend. The Board approved this change reluctantly and only for one year in the hope that we can find additional sponsors that would enable us to reduce the cost to you. As you know, a portion of the breakfast is already subsidized by Central Bank and Trust.

“Points, Pots, Pipes, and Powwows”

History books tend to include Missouri’s Indigenous population only during periods when they were a threat to the state’s white settlement. These histories overlook the fact that Native people have lived here for at least twelve thousand years and continue to call Missouri home today.

Historian Greg Olson will talk about the centuries of Indigenous presence in the state. He will discuss the inventiveness and adaptability that have enabled Missourian’s Indigenous population to change and evolve in the face of the extreme challenges they encountered. Olson will show how this resilience, allowed Indigenous people and their traditions to survive in Missouri in the twenty-first century.
