Honoring my teachers and the land
I am very grateful to the many teachers: elders, peers, youth, children, animals, natural elements, ancestors and others who have guided me and continue to guide and support me on my path to healing myself and in turn helping to heal community. Many of my teachers are family members, relatives, and friends whose names and teachings I hold close to my heart. Others who I have crossed paths with in one way or another, and are active in their work publicly, are listed in this living and growing list found by clicking this link. I learn every day from others I engage with in this work - I deeply believe we all learn from one another.
I am extremely privileged to have settled and reside as a guest on the traditional territories of the Wendake-Nionwentsïo (Huron-Wendat), the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Anishnaabe, and the Haudenosaunee, just north of Tkaronto, colonially known as Toronto, on Turtle Island, or so-called Canada. Thanks to them and their generous teachings, I have strengthened my own relationship to our plant kin, who I tend to, as they tend to me.
