Author Jan Reynolds Visits Lincoln!
On Friday, February 28, renowned author, Jan Reynolds, brought the many traditions and lifestyles of indigenous cultures into our Globe Theater – from the Aboriginals of Australia, to the Sherpas and Tibetans in the Himalayas, to the Toareg in the Sahara, to the Sami reindeer herders of the arctic, to the Inuit of North America and to the Yanamama of the Amazon. Jan also took us on the cycle of rice through the lens of Indonesian rice farmers in Bali, emphasizing how they still use sustainable farming practices. Furthermore, we spent time exploring the similarities of “Celebration” around the world to see ourselves as one human family celebrating life on earth.
