Program: dg nanouk okpik
Inupiaq-Inuit poet dg nanouk okpik was raised in an adoptive Irish German family in Anchorage, Alaska. She earned a BFA at the Institute of American Indian Arts and an MFA at the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast College.
Okpik’s lyric pastoral poems are set in her native Alaskan landscape and concerned with movement and sensory precision. Her debut poetry collection, Corpse Whale (2012), won the American Book Award.
A recipient of the Truman Capote Trust Scholarship, she has taught at the Institute for American Indian Arts and has served as a resident advisor for the Santa Fe (New Mexico) Indian School.
Last summer she taught “The Identity Project” for at-risk indigenous youth.

Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation
The Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation (UUWF) is affiliated with the national UUWF organization that advances justice for women and promotes their spiritual growth. UUWF is an independent non-profit, 501 (c) (3) associate member organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Santa Fe chapter is a part of this national organization and an affiliate organization of the Unitarian Universalist Santa Fe (UUSF).
Our UUWF in Santa Fe is one of the largest and most active groups in the country. Six of our members have received the Clara Barton award from UUWF national. We have over 60 members, with many others being on our mailing list. Members do not have to be members of UU Santa Fe. UUWF membership is $25 a year, paid in the fall.
We have nine luncheons each year – one a month from September through May on the third Saturday. We have a weekend retreat in early June. Also, we have recently enjoyed two organized trips – one to Ajijic Mexico and another to the Bosque del Apache in Socorro.
We pride ourselves on being THE PLACE to get to know other women if you are new to UU Santa Fe or to the city of Santa Fe. Our informal and friendly luncheons are preceded by a social time. Members volunteer during the year to help with one luncheon. Each luncheon has a program given by an interesting Santa Fean, including some of our own members. The luncheon cost is $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers.
The proceeds from the luncheons, and the majority of the money from dues, are distributed in the spring to local charities that benefit women and children in the Santa Fe area.
