Niá:wen Chi Miigwetch @luminatofestival for creating space ~ performing and honoring the land and the indigenous people of this land in a venue like #roythomsonhall is #beyondwords ~ 🙏🏽 #myancestors held me up tonite. My grandparents spirits filled those 2000 seats keeping me grounded. I could feel my mama holding my hand🖐🏽. And all my #chosenfamily sending those #goodvibrations gave me fire🔥. After my performance I was greeted by @amalclooneyofficial , Nick Clooney and @sophietrudeauofficial and they were all so moved; inspired ✨ This is only the beginning. #skiesthelimit #imjustgettingstarted #mommyididit #changemaker #artistlife #warrior #queening #artsfestival #gratitude #scarboroughsfinest #glowup #makingmoneymoves #indigenouspride #indigenousrights #tkaronto #poetlife #wearestillhere 📸 @karenleeartist
A timely reminder of the horrors that occur in our own (stolen) backyard as the world expresses its disgust at the Trump administration’s treatment of refugees at the border. We are a nation that was built upon colonisation, convict labour and the slaughter of the traditional owners of this land. We are a nation that keeps people and children seeking asylum detained for undisclosed, indefinite periods of time. We are a country that tortures people offshore who came to us for safety and protection. We are a nation that stands on stolen land. We are a nation that incarcerates our Indigenous people at a rate of 16 times than the white population of Australia. I would like to see the same level of repugnance expressed at what happens in the name of Turnbull, and every other white, colonialist, conservative, capitalist, fascist Prime Minister before him, as there is directed at the atrocities committed by other nations. Abolish prisons - build communities. Abolish off shore detention - grant asylum. Abolish white colonialist supremacy - recognise Aboriginal sovereignty.
For anybody who lives in Washington. Honoring the earth on Summer Solstice, we just booked our trip to next week to attend The Protecting Mother Earth Conference 2018 in Washington state. This conference is Indigenous-initiated, designed and led for the purpose of uplifting the critical voices of those leading battles against the violation of our treaty rights and self-determination, environment injustice and climate change Together our Indigenous community members, tribal leaders, traditional knowledge keepers, land defenders, seed keepers, digital campaigners, and artists to learn from each other, to envision our path forward, and to dialogue about how we can collaborate more effectively and harmoniously to protect and defend the sacred. The event will include plenaries break or sessions addressing the following key themes: Water, Oceans, Fishers, Climate Justice, Extreme Energy and Renewable Energy, Mining Food Sovereignty, Just Transition, Rights of Mother Earth, and Native and Indigenous Media Strategies. So much to learn, so much wisdom 🙏🏾✌🏾🕊at this time of extreme chaos and challenges in our country. #PME2018 #INDIGENOUSRISING #protectingmotherearth #frankslanding #KeepItInTheGround #JustTrasition #ClimateJustice #EnvironmentalJustice #IndigenousRights #Nisqually #MniWiconi #NoDapl #NoTppl #ProtectOakFlat #NoKmPl #StopLine3

Sacramento folx!- There's a group carpooling over together in the morning! Message the decolonization project here or on fb to ride along! @the_decolonization_project . The pressure is having an effect—time to crank it up a notch! We call BS on the executive order. Reunite the children with their parents, permanently. End child concentration camps and family concentration camps. . There is only one ICE facility in the Bay Area (within the West County Detention Facility in Richmond, CA). Activists have planned an all day action there for next Tuesday, which we support (link below). But many of us can't go during the weekday, and we don't want to wait longer than that. Who's in for driving to this detention center en masse to protest non-violently on Saturday, June 23? Who can commit? . If we can get 100 RSVPs for this action by Friday night, it's on. If there are fewer than 100 RSVPs, then we hold off and those of you that can should consider going to the Tuesday action mentioned before: https://www.facebook.com/events/187632995265860/ . Saturday, June 23, at 10:00am. Bring little kids shoes to represent the missing kids who have been dragged from their parents. Make signs, bring bullhorns, be loud but peaceful. Please only RSVP if you are serious about coming. . Tearing children from their parents is completely inhumane. We can't let this continue. This Saturday, let's go DO something about it! . #stopseparatingfamilies #stopterrorizingchildren #enddeportations #enddetainment #thisisnotok #endborders #immigrantrights #immigrantrightsnow #ftbp #indigenousrights #daca #dreamers #standupfightback #endnafta #sacramento #916 #brownissues #brownberets #brownberetsdesacraztlan #brownberetsdecalifas
The best thing about being a history teacher is that there is still SO much to learn. In my opinion, the best way to learn is to travel and to listen to the people. Go beyond books and the internet and ask questions, visit museums, talk to the people who lived through it. For example: I just learned today that a famous Peruvian dish - Anticuchos - Was influenced by Afro-Peruvians. Go figure! #Peru #huancayo #junin #culture #kallpaywarmi #afroperuvian #afroperuano #diaspora #indigenousrights #history #anticuchos

Happy World Rainforest Day! My mind and heart have been in the rain forest lately… Just finished page proofs for Tree of Dreams (coming in March) and I've started an exciting collaboration involving the rain forest… Still at the early stages, but I can't wait to share more with you once things are further along! 🌿🌺🦋 #ceibatree #kapoktree #worldrainforestday #amazonrainforest #waoraniresistance #kidlit #middlegrade #diversebooks #environmentalbooks #indigenousrights

Take a moment to check out these children’s book titles pertaining to important social issues like migration, refugeeism, and colonization. These are picture books, but I also have a list of chapter books I’d be happy to share if there is interest. . These are powerful reads that help shed some light on these issues. This would make an amazing @donorschoose project! If you decide to make one, please share with me so I can help you fund it. . Please feel free to tag someone below who may be interested in this list. . . . . . #socialjustice #nojusticenopeace #worldrefugeeday #childrensbooks #kidlit #weneeddiversebooks #classroomlibrary #teachlove #teachersofinsta #teachersofig #teachersfollowteachers #iteach #iteachtoo #iteach456 #iteach4th #iteach345 #teachyourheartout #indigenousrights #migrationisbeautiful #allarewelcomeinmyclassroom #allarewelcome #allarewelcomehere #bethechange #chooselove #choosepeace
Angela Shisheesh is back in Ontario Superior Court this morning fighting for her legal rights as a St. Anne's survivor. I am appalled at the bad faith of the Liberal government and the Catholic Church in undermining the rights of these survivors. They make the words reconciliation sound very hollow. #fightingforthenorth #lutterpourlenord #charlieangus #northontario #timminsontario #jamesbayontario #reconciliation #indigenousrights #survivors #justiceforsurvivors

Because as a Canadian it is my DUTY to know about the realities and atrocities of relations between the indigenous nations of Canada and the settlers that took the land as their own. How is it that I only learned about residential schools a few years ago at age 33? Why is all of this information only being taught NOW in our schools? We must change this! We must educate ourselves and our children! It’s time to recognize that this isn’t “the past”, that things that started hundreds of years ago continue to affect how things are today! I’m glad that I can now share these truths with my students and teach them the importance of relationships so that they can become the leaders of tomorrow and hopefully not repeat the same mistake as those that came before us. #indigenouspeople #indigenousrights #indigenouswrites #chelseavowel #canadianhistory #residentialschools #realhistory #reconciliation

#flashbackfriday T-10 hours before I open for @amalclooneyofficial tonite at Roy Thomson Hall for the @luminatofestival. This pix from the opening of @ltabtoronto last month pretty sums up the #ancestralmedicine I'll be calling on tonite. Plz keep ur girl in your thoughts...I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed but so humbled by this amazing opportunity to hold space where space has not always been for us. #poetlife #spokenword #indigenousrights #humanrights #wearestillhere #bebrave #gratitude #femmefriday #artsfestival #amalclooney #roythomsonhall #tkaronto #afronative #artistlife #changemaker
