The Medicine Quilt Part 2: Roy Kaufman and Lois Janzen Preheim

On this episode of Home Starts Here, Joshua Hofer, former SDSU Extension Community Vitality Field Specialist, and Kara Harders speak with Roy Kaufman and Lois Janzen Preheim from the Freeman Network for Justice and Peace. They discuss the Medicine Quilt project with Wagner Horizons from the Freeman Network's perspective and explore the common themes and perspectives that brought these groups together. Join them as they learn about Freeman's work in peacebuilding, collaboration between diverse populations, and the themes of ownership and reconciliation. This episode was recorded live at 2023's Schmeckfest in Freeman, SD, as part of the Heritage Hall Museum & Archives' programming.
