Written by Dañel Malán, performed by Teatro Milagro
Parker Room, Yakima Campus, 7:00pm
Cosponsored by Central Washington University

Swept up in an immigration raid and deported to Mexico, Rio, Luz and Sal are suddenly immersed into indigenous prophecies surrounding B’aktun 13, the final era in the Mayan calendar. In the Yucatán, they encounter Mayan deities Ixchel, goddess of water and moon, and Ahpuch, god of death, who lead the trio deeper into a mythological universe. Time revolves like a Mayan calendar as each must face the consequences of their pasts. When the end of the era of B’aktun 13 arrives on December 21, 2012, will the world change? Or will they?

B’aktun 13 is a participating production of the 2012 Fertile Ground festival of new works (www.fertilegroundpdx.org). After its two-week run in Portland, B’aktun 13 will go on tour to schools, colleges and universities around the country.

 Diversity Series: Deaf Jam
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Deccio Higher Education Center - (Parker Room)

Yakima Valley Community College’s 2011-2012 Diversity Series Sustainable Communities presents:

April 11th Film Showing:  Deaf Jam
Parker Room, Yakima Campus, 11:30am

April 12th Film Showing:  Deaf Jam
Film by Jeff Lieff
Parker Room, Yakima Campus, 12:30pm
Cosponsored by YVCC’s ASL Club

Aneta Brodski is an Israeli-born teenager living in Queens, New York. She is passionate and driven and well liked by her high school classmates. Unique among her classmates, Aneta longs to fully participate in the hearing world. While she is proud of her deafness, she does not want to be defined by it. At her school, Aneta joins an extracurricular program to learn American Sign Language poetry. She and her fellow students gradually find their inner voice in the poems they create. Aneta’s world opens up as she is tantalized by the possibility of competing in a poetry slam with mostly hearing competitors. With ties to rap and hip-hop culture, the U.S. National Poetry Slams for youth have gained momentum across the country, highlighting a highly verbal and rhythmic form of self-expression. Aneta is one of the first deaf youth to participate in a major slam event, and despite some initial anxiety about how the deaf performers might be received, she courageously takes the stage. In a remarkable twist of fate, Aneta meets and then collaborates with Tahani — a hearing Palestinian slam poet. They create a hearing/deaf duet touching on their shared personal and cultural experiences — generating a new form of slam poetry that crosses boundaries, cultures, and languages. Information provided by: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/deaf-jam/film.html.

The 2011/2012 Diversity Series is sponsored by: YVCC Ethnic Programs, Title V Grant, YVCC Moviemento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) Student Club, YVCC TiinMa Student Club, YVCC Black Student Union Student Club, YVCC ASL Student Club, YVCC Social Science Department, Central Washington University, The Seasons Performance Hall, and the Yakima Environmental Learning Foundation.

 Bird Communities of Cowiche Canyon Conservancy
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Glenn Anthon Hall - (G215)

Yakima Valley Community College Biology Department, in collaboration with the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy, presents Mr. Andy Stepniewski. His talk Bird Communities of Cowiche Canyon Conservancy, will be held April 11, 2012 at 7:00pm in Glenn Anthon Hall Room 215. Admission is free and open to the community.

Stepniewski’s lecture will take participants on a tour through Cowiche Canyon Conservancy's various plant communities, illustrating and interpreting the key bird species of each. He will cover the riparian community with its lush vegetation, grasslands (recovering pastures) abutting the riparian habitats, the Garry oak community, the various shrub-steppe communities, and  the birds associated with the scenic cliff and talus community.

Andy Stepniewski has had a nearly life-long interest in natural history, beginning as a teenager in southern California. That region, with its varied topography and climates, hosts a remarkable array of plant communities. Those years proved an outstanding introduction to plant zonation and associated birds. These lessons proved invaluable when he came to Washington and developed a keen appreciation of the diversity of plant communities and their wildlife along the Cascade east slopes. Andy has always treasured “enjoying getting ahold of a piece of country” as did the famous naturalist Aldo Leopold. With 20 years of data on the birds in the area, Andy authored Birds of Yakima County

 $5.00 suggested donation. All donations will help to support future ASL events in the Central Washington area. 

Born hearing to Deaf parents Keith grew up living in both the hearing and deaf worlds. This unique perspective has evolved into a one-man show, Watching Two Worlds Collide, which takes a humorous look at both worlds. Come and enjoy a night of storytelling and Deaf culture. Laugh with Keith as he takes you on a hilarious “visual” journey to describe his childhood experiences. Come learn about the Deaf and hearing worlds and how they often clash with the help of a mischievous CODA (child of Deaf adults). Keith Wann is an acclaimed ASL performer who has been captivating and entertaining audiences with his controlled chaos and total pandemonium comedy explosions on stage, often leaving his laughing audiences gasping for breath. Wann has established a reputation for his crazy, off-the-wall stories that ring true with CODA’s everywhere and are equally funny for members of both the Deaf and hearing communities. Information provided by: http://www.keithwann.com/KW/Home.html .

Windell Smith Jr (Otherwise known as Wink) takes his passion with him across the United States to promote American Sign Language, Deaf rights, and humorous comedy shows. Wink is currently touring with his one man show Looking Up At Deaf Culture, which brings to life both the tragic, beautiful, and hilarious moments of both his own and his parents’ lives.

Cults and Blogs: From Childhood Trauma to Healing Therapy
Dan Erickson, YVCC speech and communication instructor

As a child, Dan Erickson lived and worked on an 80-acre ranch. He was not allowed to live with his parents, but instead lived in a bunkhouse with a group of young men and boys. He worked 12-14 hour days every summer and worked 6-8 hour days during the school year. Dan was a child victim of Eden Farms, a cult that operated in Snohomish, Washington throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In his lecture on “cults and blogs,” Dan will recount his experiences at Eden Farms. He’ll also share excerpts from his novel, A Train Called Forgiveness, a story written entirely online. The story revisits difficulties he faced in his mid-to-late 20s as he came to terms with his traumatic past.  For more information: http://danerickson.net/.
