This is a past event.

Marcus Briggs-Cloud (Maskoke) is a language revitalizer, scholar, musician and co-director of Ekvn-Yefolecv: an off-grid, climate-positive, income-sharing ecovillage compromised of Maskoke People who, after 180 years of displacement, returned to their homelands for the revitalization of their language and culture, and commitment to ecologically regenerative lifeways. Marcus is partnered to Tawna Little (Maskoke) and they have two children, Nokos-Afvnoke and Hemokke, with whom Marcus enjoys speaking exclusively in the Maskoke language.
