Happy Indigenous Peoples day
I’ve spent it in Canada celebrating thanksgiving. Both remind me of the true generosity of the Native Americans when the colonizers came to Turtle Island. There were years the settlers would never have survived without their wisdom and kindness. As we look around at the state of the environment and the capitalizing of the planet it’s important to remember our native family isn’t a relic of the past. They have much wisdom that hasn’t been heard over the loud voices of colonialism that have kept us calling our home the “new world” and celebrating a figure that reflects an oppressive and traumatic history. Today I thank the local tribe and acknowledge - the Mississaugas-a branch of the greater Obijwa nation for being the original land stewards. May our societies learn to listen to a more harmonious alternative to living on earth.
