This course is for:
Indigenous and other people of color who are committed to returning ancestral traditions to the communities to which they belong.
Anyone who wishes to heal their ancestral lineage and repair the soul wounds inflicted upon Indigenous Americans.
Anyone who holds knowledge with integrity, free of cultural appropriation.
Pregnant/parenting people, relatives who wish to restore their traditional kinship models, midwives, doulas, lactation counselors, experienced and aspiring birth workers.
This course is taught from an Ojibwe Anishinaabe perspective and centers the experiences of Indigenous people of the Great Lakes region.
This space is intended for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) only, including mixed-POC and children of various global diasporas.
The course intentionally uses gender affirming and inclusive language in reverence and respect for Two-Spirit, Queer, Trans, and Non-Binary relatives. Please only enter this space if you’re willing to fight for equity and equality alongside our Trans relatives in true accordance with our Indigenous kinship philosophies. You don’t have to be perfect, but you do have to TRY. #Decolonize
