How Marriage Became Permanent. a Myth from the Plains Indians

Speaker(s)
Description

'The Wives of the Sun and Moon' is one of the key myths of Claude Levi-Strauss' monumental study, Mythologiques. This evening will take the form of a story-telling followed by a workshop and class discussion to decode the message of the myth. Originally, according to this story, marriage was not a fixed state but a once-a-month honeymoon. Everything started going badly wrong when permanent wedlock was installed.
