Continuing the Journey

Learning about racism against the Native American community

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. Doing the work often precludes talking about the work. Walking the walk is more important than talking the talk. And sometimes, my Higher Power in my faith community makes their presence known through signs and signposts. It seems as if all of the signs and signposts have been pointing to issues on the Native people of the land upon which I write, and their descendants as rightful heirs of this land that has been bloodied by settler colonialism. It’s time for me to learn and live into disrupting and dismantling settler colonialism’s lawless legacy inflected upon Native people and educate my white peers to call them into action to do the same.
