Shift out of colonial defaults and into critical consciousness.
Join us for a virtual guide through the Decolonize First workbook activities and resources.
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, Squamish, the workbook guides readers through personal and systemic framings and actions to shift out of colonial defaults and into critical consciousness.
Decolonize First is informed and inspired by two years of hosting Decolonizing Practices workshops. It responds to and extends the activation and excitement participants express as wanting to learn and do more. 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. Please have your digital or print workbook ready along with some coloured markers and post-its.
