Our Programs


Marilyn Hudson Brave Conversations Project. Honoring the legacy of the late MHA Nation elder and North Dakota historian Marilyn Hudson, the Brave Conversations Project builds community through conversation and inviting everyone to have a seat at the table. Today's leading problem-solvers take center stage offering a thought-provoking presentation followed by authentic, moderator-led discussion in small groups. Attendees explore new ideas and meet interesting people. This program is offered in-person and livestreamed online. Program costs vary.

Any upcoming Brave Conversation events will be listed here

"The humanities expand our knowledge of cultures and provide an essential understanding of what we have in common and what makes us different from others."

Jessica Ackerman

"Recently I met up with a few friends to virtually tune in to a Brave Conversations event. I look forward to registering for more virtual classes that explore diverse perspectives and promote critical thinking." 

Brad Kroupa

"I loved interacting with students who were truly interested in the topics we discussed. I had an amazing group of people who were engaged each week and contributed to powerful conversations."
