Call for Proposals
Heart Berries: A Memoir is a profound exploration of one indigenous woman’s journey through posttraumatic stress order, bipolar II disorder, and a tumultuous upbringing on Seabird Island Band in the Pacific Northwest. Through the illustrative recounting of her lived experience, Terese Marie Mailhot beautifully captures her journey through healing, recovery, and acceptance.
Following the book discussions, the Amplifying Voices in Discourse (AVID) Committee invites NCU alumni, faculty, students, and staff to attend a micro-conference exploring themes related to Heart Berries through engaging presentations delivered by members from the NCU Community. The Heart Berries Micro-Conference will occur via Zoom on March 18, 2021, at 1 pm AZT.

Join us as we amplify Terese Marie Mailhot’s voice by discussing her memoir, Heart Berries. Heart Berries is a prolific illustration of Mailhot’s coming of age on the Seabird Island Band, her battle with posttraumatic stress disorder and family trauma, and her journey through recovery. Part One of this series will review the first half of the memoir (Introduction to Chapter 5). Part Two of this series will review the second half of the memoir (Chapters 6 - Afterword). While we encourage participants to read the memoir, it is not required to join the discussion.
Participate in any aspect of the AVID discussion you’d like – we look forward to your contribution.
