NiΓ‘:wen Chi Miigwetch πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ to all the students and teachers from Victoria Park C.I. who courageously took this #learningjourney with me today @agotoronto #learningdays and my EO Maureen for holding me up during our session. This is my 5th year with the program and as always I learn as much from the students as they do from me πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸŽ“. #artseducation #indigenousart #showlove #artistlife #artgallery #decolonize #indigenize #artforsocialchange

@agotoronto #learningdays started with a gallery walk focusing on water and land justice with works by Ruth Cuthand and Robert Houle with water mapping and word clustering to follow, after I shared some my own stories from the land which I have experienced during my travels across OniatarΓ­:io over the past year and a discussion around Grassy Narrows and the recent passing of Elder Steve Fobister. #waterislife #artseducation #artgallery #tdsb #nac10 #indigenousart #spokenword #highschool #waterrights #waterprotectors #oka Swipe πŸ‘ˆπŸ½for the #learningmoments

Its #veteransday #remembranceday 🌺 and yes for many of my generation who have descendants who fought in Wars they never started; this can feel complicated because of our #socialconsciousness ~ my grandfather was and always will be a warrior 🏹 and my hero. He fought for those he loved~he fought to uphold our rights and freedoms~he fought so we wouldn't have too. #wwii #remembrancesunday #warrior #canadianarmedforces #militaryservice #granddaughterlove #grandpa #novascotia

#femmefriday Day Two representing @torontoccld at the CIARS Decolonizing Conference: Dialoguing and Living Well Together #ciars2018 was filled with laughter; #catchingfeels and so many #shotsfired by an amazing line up of Professors, Teachers and Students sharing so many tools, lived experiences and motivation for being a warrior for change. I was reminded that on this path of decolonizing we need to ask ourselves: 1. How Do We Return Sovereignty To Our Ancestors? 2. If Learning is Spirit, How Can We Engage as Critical Learners & Healers to a Wounded Place? 3. Can We Envision Learning Spaces as Borderlines; Where Resistance is Possible? Or Can We Instead Reimagine it as Borderless? 4. What Knowledge's Are Students Asking For When They Question The Curriculum? 5. What Would Education Look Like If We Said We Weren't Interested In The White Gaze? 6. If I AM to a Degree Implicated in the Colonial Project, How Do I Begin To Divest From Whiteness? 7. If BIPOC Folx are United Under Purpose and United Under Crisis, How Are We Actually United?

Visual Betty Albert Licenz~ November Clan Mother of the Little Spirit Moon is the one that teaches us to walk in truth. Teaches us how to lead by example. Reminds us to be proactive when we are experiencing change instead of being codependent on others. We must exude humility while we succeed and refine our skills. When we walk in truth we shouldn't fear what others think of us. Reputation is based on integrity. Inner knowing. Self-gratification is best experienced by remaining connected to all things and honour the sacredness of that connection and celebrate our spirit selves more frequently; while making time to heal before Winter. She is the keeper of leadership through innovation. She is also the mother of perseverance and stamina. We must continually work to have a healthy mind and body connection. Honour and listen to our bodies needs. We can preserve meeting our goals when our body is healthy. And stamina comes from treating our body with mindfulness and self-care. Self-Care is also a cocreation with our ancestors and spirit guides, who send us abundant visions if we just stop and pay attention more often. We must remember to use all our gifts of well being, attitude, introspection, and spirituality to meet any and all challenges head on. And share our positive energy with chosen family and friends, while conserving our emotional labor. This moon I'm going to continue to lead through innovation reminding our elders that innovation doesn't take anything away from traditions of the past but rather adds new ways of knowing. Continue to walk in truth courageously ~ no time for blocking blessings. And I must continue to prioritize resetting for the purpose of reemergence. Soul elevation and vibrations alignments require stillness πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒ‘πŸŒ¬#clanmother #spirit #moon #teachings #November #leadership #innovation #reputation #truth #health #mind #body #traditions #courage #selfcare #goals #change #heal #connections #dontblocktheblessings #indigenous #path #reset #soulelevation #gifts #vibratehigher #visions

Since it is technically trespassing for folx to cross the bridge and there is fencing and barricades between the land and the River, I wasn't able to offer any tobacco to #amikzibii 🌊 so I found a #grandfathertree 🌲🌲🌳🌳and offered them some. πŸ‚πŸ‚ Felt so good to be trespassing on indigenous land πŸ˜†πŸ˜† #tresspass #treelife #motherearth #tobacco #gratitude #journey #travel #thisisindigenousland #sudbury #northernontario
