About the speaker
Ziggy Khan is honored and humbled to be considered a friend to Lakota communities in South Dakota. For the past four years she has joined them on the Wounded Knee Memorial Ride. Each December, members of the Lakota Nation ride 300 miles cross-country on horseback for three weeks to commemorate the massacre of their people at Wounded Knee in 1890. They ride now to offer prayers for their ancestors, each other, and the world. Ziggy hopes to inspire awareness for the challenges her friends face, as well as a sense of contribution and connection from what she has learned from experiencing this powerful journey.
Ziggy has helped lead arts-education initiatives for youth in China, and in severely high-need communities in Karachi, Pakistan. She is the Associate Executive Director for Mission Science Workshop (MSW), a nonprofit that provides hands-on science education activities for students from low-income communities and schools in San Francisco. MSW currently serves 41 public schools and annually impacts 11,000 individual youth and their families.
