How I Got Here:
A Space for intergenerational Healing
A circle of Ritual and story sharing birthed from our Indigenous/ Afrikan solidarity:
What lessons did we learn from our parents?
How do we hold intergenerational healing within us? Who do we heal with?
How can we heal with our Ancestors?
How does Intergenerational Healing relate to colonization and sovereignty?
We will help open Indigenous Peoples’ Week as part of Sovereignty 101 Day. This will be a lead in for more Intergenerational Healing work for Spirit Plate event(s) at the end of binaakwe giizis.
