Know the Land’s Creation Story (ENGAGEMENT) -
“To understand the reasons you must first look at the origins.” ― Anthony T. Hinckst
This week, we’ve shared Transformative Praxises that center being a better ally and changemaker to change the narrative of Indigenous invisibility. We’re going to go deeper into the Praxis of knowing where you stand with regard to Indigenous land.
