Professor George “Tink” Tinker, Clifford Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions at Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado, will give a public lecture at the Yale School of Divinity entitled “Individual Salvation vs. Cosmic Balance: An American Indian Perspective.” Tinker will contrast “Euro-notions” of personal salvation with a more traditional Native framework of cosmic balance, one that imagines a cosmology of interdependence to counter what he describes as the persistence of a vertically stratified colonial Christian theology. A public reception will follow the address. For more information, contact Tisa Wenger, 203-432-2493 or
