We are living in a time of high contrast. Explore Indigenous concepts of land, place and decolonization. Examine decolonial practices (language, art, economics and gender) combined with embodied knowledge of Indigenous peoples, and the ways that centering this knowledge can rupture the politics of what is considered valid “knowing.” Together we will learn to laterally liberate consciousness.
