    Heart to Heart

    Indigenous Relations Consultation

     

  • {{ At The Heart Of It }}

    We’ve each been colonized & this impacts everything ~

     

    I understand this to be the deciding factor that determines the outcomes & informs interactions between our healing Ancestors ~ Life has shaped me in such a way to share understanding about this, in heartfelt, in-depth & empowering ways ~

     

    I hold my hands up to the Elders, Mentors & Village that raised me, to the many Aunties & deep feeling relatives that kept me in my heart & accountable to my emotions, to the Ceremony that gave my spirit a home ~

     

    I was born during a time of tremendous healing with a responsibility to the generations to come ~

     

    I honor the place in your heart that cares deeply for the Indigenous People, I honor the unwitnessed truths in your being that need a place to be ~

     

    This is where we meet ~

    The Heart of Racism

    You aren't a bad person, you're just uninformed

     

    Like many forms of trauma influenced conditioning, racism is a source of hurt that has become normalized to the point that folks can’t see what’s right in front of them ~ Often times ‘being racist’ is viewed as a direct attack on a persons innate goodness as a human & folks rush to defend this above all else, failing to see that they are in fact ignorant because things were designed to keep them that way, reinforcing the undertones of racism interwoven in daily life ~ In this presention, you'll be receiving what's resulted from much integration, deep heart processing, big admitting & self reflecting, all put into a this contribution to the bigger journey of unpacking this concept of racism ~

    Right Use of Privilege Statement

    Not The "Land Acknowledgement

    Workshop" You Expect

     

    To do a “Land Acknowledgement” without recognizing & stating how you’re contributing to / supporting your Hosts in their returning to strength is entirely self serving ~ It can take time, reflection, inner enquiry & some lived research to fully understand how to show up in Right Use of Privilege as a Practicing Ally ~ By acknowledging the land you're standing on, you are indirectly acknowledging what’s happened to it, how it got to be the way it is, the people who call it Home, as you benefit from their sacrifices ~ In this presentation, you will guided & encouraged to state how it is you are honoring your Indigenous Hosts by putting your privilege to right use ~

    Being "White" Is A Cultural Concept

    The origins & impacts of "whiteness",

    from the roots up

     

    If “white” were to be traced back to its ethnic origins, it wouldn’t have one ~ Europe is a huge land mass & going from one region to another there are vast differences ~ When someone says they're “white” its not describing the culture, land & people their roots are from, it’s about describing relationship to power ~ We will be getting into this, how whiteness formed, why it exists, what purpose it serves, what are some of it's impacts & how it's upheld, all from my Indigenous world view & in relation to coming back into right relationship with your Hosts ~

    The Anatomy of Settler Guilt

    Unlocking The Goodness Stuck in Guilt

     

    This offering is inspired by a common thing i hear from folks whose path has led them to working with me: the enormous amount of guilt they feel on behalf of their Ancestors, their race, their own human species ~ Unchecked, unexamined guilt as a motivating source in Allyship is like using damp kindling that fills the space with smoke, clouding the vision & keep deep breaths shallow & limited ~ We will be unpacking the many compents of "Settler Guilt" with helpful guidance & suggestions on how to move in & on & through it ~
