The amount of time and energy we use in our lifetimes explaining our indigeneity to settlers is not what our ancestors fought for. We are not free educators on all things Indigenous. or don’t ask us at all. This includes you, university profs.

Trauma and issue work is a living example of the old ones prayers as it is the key to keeping our children safe & our families thriving. It is the route to revitalizing indigenous kinship systems. Do it for yourself, but ultimately do it for the children who are on their way.

Rather than growing up in families with normalized intergenerational trauma, our children, and our children’s children, deserve to grow up in families with intergenerational healing.

The commitment to the trauma and issue work I do on myself today is a selfless act of love to future generations. Ultimately, it grants future generations with the gift to focus on their OWN healing rather than having to focus on their ancestor’s incomplete trauma and issue work

Indigenous children deserve to grow up knowing that just because they are born indigenous does not mean that they have to be political.

Sometimes it’s better to be the tough and safe Aunty than the “fun” Aunty.

My latest article for Today’s Parent: “My mother raised me from a place of her colonial pain. But ultimately, my mother gave me the tools for how to be a mother from a place of Indigenous love, the ultimate weapon in destroying colonialism.”

Can our own people appropriate Indigenous culture and knowledge?

Because when coming out of the mouth of the colonized- these words are all co-opted and transformed into colonial lingo for “assimilation” and “continued colonization.” Watch your backs. The colonized attempts to make everything of ours their own.

Five words I no longer trust when coming out of the mouth of the colonizer: 1. Apology 2. Reconciliation 3. Consultation 4. Decolonization 5. Indigenization

Indigenous identity comes from our homelands and our kinship. Not from the colonizer’s idea of what our identity is.

We don’t need more strong, fierce & unapologetic Indigenous women We need EVERY Indigenous women to recognize & transmit strength and fierceness unapologetically, no matter where they are or who they’re with Because every Indigenous woman can be unapologetically strong & fierce

He didn’t trade in reconciliation with Indigenous peoples for pipelines. Trudeau’s colonial idea of reconciliation IS trading Indigenous peoples in for pipelines.

White people always be like “I am so amazed at your resilience.” Every person of colour’s response: “Why? White people are the ones who caused the trauma in our lives for generations to the point that today’s families are still forced to be resilient in the first place.”
