  1. Posoh.

    I’ve noticed that you folks still have an active link up to the resource library over at my old website The Speed of Dreams. That site is not defunct and most materials from it have been removed.

    You can find the newer incarnation of the resource library over at Onkwehón:we Rising

  2. Great resources, thanks so much! I’m a student at Camosun, and haven’t been brought up learning about these types of things. I’m super interested in learning about how I can become less oppressive in my life, and links like this really help me get that info. Thanks!

  3. unfortunately the links to colonialism on the ground and white supremacy culture do not work 😦
