Cultural Territories Resources

Nicole Preissl has done such a great job putting together resources for those that have participated in our Cultural Territories 101 series, we didn’t want this collection of links to get lost

If you missed Nicole’s last Cultural Territories 101 conversation, or just wanted to follow up on some of the reading, here is a fantastic list of the many resources and articles she compiled in her research.  youtube playlist (food images taken from here)

Our guest from the Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwaka’wakw nations was Valeen Jules, a queer carver, birth worker, radio producer, youth outreach worker, spoken word artist, community organizer, workshop facilitator, and filmmaker with a passion for nation building and QTBIPOC liberation. Valeen is reconnecting with their roots and continuously learning from the land and ocean. Valeen has a lot of titles that don’t pay enough, but their favourite jobs are being an aunty and being the greatest bad influence to their friends. Causing trouble and being an example of radical self-care each day is just another step towards their sovereignty for their nations and for their communities. This was a fantastic session and we hope to have Valeen back with us again!

Here is the prework that was sent out to participants
