From the organizers:
For Indigenous, Black, & Latinx Peoples focusing on mindful decolonization strategies intended to help undo the legacy of colonization.
Colonization is pervasive, but for Indigenous, Black, and Latinx Peoples the impacts of genocide, slavery, appropriation of traditional culture, loss of cultural identity, and the loss of and removal from ancestral lands remain. Traumatic memories are encoded in every one of us, and the stigma of our refusal to assimilate is always present, especially in the face of current threats to our planet, cultures, and communities.
This gathering, led by and held for Indigenous, Black, and Latinx Peoples, is both a leadership exploration and a healing retreat focused on mindful decolonization strategies intended to help undo the legacy of colonization in each of us and within our practice of activism.
How settler colonialism has impacted our thinking and ways of being
How we engage in responsible land guardianship and restoration
How we re-incorporate sacred laws into our daily life
How we can mindfully decolonize ourselves and our communities
How we can heal historical divisions between different groups
We come together in unity to plant a seed that will benefit current and future leaders, by cultivating the spiritual warriors of today and tomorrow.
Throughout the week we are joined by guest presenters Leah Penniman, Sachem Hawkstorm, Naftali Duran, David Ragland and Stephanie Morningstar.
Teachers are subject to change.
