Unpacking Systemic Racism: Decolonize First (Free, Online)
With Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee
October 19, 2020
What is required for us to repair the damage caused by colonization and neocolonialism? What personal shifts and actions can be done towards building reconciliation? Decolonize First, a liberating guide & workbook is 16 pages of process, prompts and links to resources to support your decolonizing journey. Written and designed by Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee of the Squamish Nation, the workbook guides readers through personal and systemic framings and actions to shift out of colonial defaults and into critical consciousness.
Join Ta7talíya to walk together through the workbook activities and resources. This workbook webinar will provide space for the self-reflection and preparation needed to peel back the layers of neocolonialism that impede all of us.
Your participation in this workshop will be enhanced with a copy of the Decolonize First Workbook. While not required, we encourage participants to purchase a copy ($24 CAD) and bring it to the session.
