Bobby Joe Smith III is a Black and Lakota (Hunkpapa and Oohenumpa) graphic designer and media artist. Design, computation, performance, writing, and lens-based image-making are mediums of expression and inquiry he turns to often. His creative practice is rooted in the ongoing decolonial and abolitionist movements led by Indigenous communities on Turtle Island and across the Black diaspora. His research draws from the decolonial, abolitionist, and post-apocalyptic strategies of Black and Indigenous people to construct a poetic vernacular of "unsettling grammars"—gestures, methodologies, and utterances that deviate, disrupt, and dismantle settler-colonial systems. By rearticulating these "unsettling grammars" through the disciplines of media art and design, Bobby Joe seeks to reveal vectors leading toward decolonial futures and generate work that resonates with the people and movements that comprise his community. He currently is pursuing an MFA from UCLA's Design | Media Arts department and holds an MFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), a Post-Baccalaureate degree in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and a B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from Middlebury College.In this episode, listen as we discuss how Bobby Joe utilizes design to uplift his community and how we can encourage students to think about design in a way that is meaningful to them.

Native American Anishinaabe people have been living around the Great Lakes since time immemorial, following spiritual beliefs centred around the water. But they say their way of life is being threatened by an oil pipeline sitting on the bed of the Straits of Mackinac, a volatile waterway connecting two of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The Line 5 pipeline has been there for 69 years, but only came to public attention after a major oil spill in Michigan led to its discovery. The company that owns the pipeline insist it is safe. But its location is central to the Anishinaabe people's creation story, positioned as it is in the heart of North America, or Turtle Island as the Anishinaabe call it. They believe they have a sacred oath with The Creator to protect the Great Lakes, which contain a fifth of the world's fresh surface water. The BBC's Leana Hosea meets some of the tribes affected in their Michigan reservations and follows their fight to protect their faith and traditions in modern America. Photo Credit: Gerardo Reyes

This episode dives into the nightmarish reality of residential schools and their connection to capitalism. Here are some of the issues we discuss:The history of the residential school systemThe connection between residential schools and the militaryHow these facilities promoted capitalist valuesHow residential school allowed for the theft of land“Outing programs” that tried to make Indigenous children into farm laborers and servantsIndigenous erasure and how it was perpetuated by these “schools”Native activismProfessor Jimmy Lee Beason II is a member of the Osage Nation. He is also a Professor in the Indigenous American Indian Studies Department at Haskell University in Lawrence, Kansas – a facility that was once the site of a residential school. Through his work, he's able to share Indigenous history, culture, and values with Native youth and adults. In teaching and mentoring Indigenous students, Jimmy's decolonial work combats the legacy of Indigenous erasure perpetuated by the residential school system across Turtle Island. Follow Jimmy on Instagram @osage_native_scholar and you can find links to his written works and interviews on Linktree.Osage Native Cooler (spirit-free)This spirit-free cocktail is a refreshing non-alcoholic riff on a classic Cooler. Jimmy prefers cucumber and mint but try it with any fruit and herb combination like strawberry and basil or use cilantro instead of mint. A non-alcoholic spirit such as Seedlip helps to add the flavor and body of a alcoholic spirit without any of the booze and can really elevate and add complexity to your favorite spirit-free cocktail.

Exposing the genocide being carried out against Palestinian people by the settler Israeli regime. During today's episode, we discuss Palestinian resistance to zionist terror, both past and present. We talk about how Palestinian people are organizing and mobilizing against Israeli state violence. We also shed light on the dark psychology behind zionism and how it is perpetuated in mainstream media. Today's guests are Falastini Moghtareb and Comrade Libre. Falastini is a Palestinian-American university professor and socialist. He has been politically active in and out of the U.S. for the last 20 years. He was formally Chairman of the North American Committee Against Zionism and Imperialism in the U.S. from 2005 to 2010. He writes about Palestine regularly and is currently working on a book about Palestinian resistance. Comrade Libre is an Afro-Boricua poet, organizer, and communist based out of Miami, Florida, whose organizing involves moving theory into practice. As a member of the Troika Kollective, they organize in their communities; and as internationalists, they build with movements in the Global South and across Turtle Island. Unmasking Imperialism exposes imperialist propaganda in mainstream media. Hosted by Ramiro Sebastián Fúnez.

Today, the podcast starts with a prayer from our guest, Glenn Aparicio Parry, PhD (Humanities); East-West Psychology MA (both from CIIS), and now adjunct faculty at CIIS. Glenn speaks about his time as a student at CIIS in the 1980's and shares ideas that have gone into his current EWP course Original Thinking: Land, Language, and Consciousness from East-West and Indigenous Perspectives. We discuss foundational cosmological, psychological and philosophical ideas from Glenn's trilogy of books Original Thinking, Original Politics, and he reads from his forthcoming book Original Love. Glenn states that western thought places origin in a point in time, as in the temporal event of the Big Bang, while North American Indigenous thought identifies origin as a place, the latter being the eco-psychological basis of Glenn's work. We discuss Glenn's idea that “originally all thoughts were prayers” and ask how in contemporary times we can reconnect with the cosmogenesis of our culture as an unfolding spiritual journey of interconnectedness. The conversation goes deep, asking what our collective prayers are in contemporary times, grappling with how to overcome the shadow of modernity and colonialism, and begins to formulate holistic Indigenous and ecological models of how to create new future potentials. Glenn Aparicio Parry, PhD, of Basque, Aragon Spanish, and Jewish descent, is an educator, ecopsychologist, and two-time Nautilus award winning author of Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again (SelectBooks, 2020) and Original Thinking: A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature (North Atlantic Press, 2015) and is currently writing Original Love, the third book in the trilogy. The founder and past president of the SEED Institute, Parry is currently an adjunct faculty member of the California Institute of Integral Studies, the president of the think tank: Circle for Original Thinking www.originalthinking.us and the host of the Circle for Original Thinking podcast. Parry organized and participated in the groundbreaking Language of Spirit Conferences from 1999 – 2011 that brought together Native and Western scientists in dialogue, moderated by Leroy Little Bear. Parry now regularly moderates dialogues for various organizations and has appeared in several documentaries, including SEEDing Change: A Retrospective of the Language of Spirit Dialogues and Journeying to Turtle Island, a biographic film exploring David Peat's life and participation in the dialogue circles by Spanish filmmaker Miryam Servet. He is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hiking and fly fishing.

Richard is working on a graphic novel about a deadly monster called Wheetago, one of the many creatures that's tormented Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island since before anyone can remember. He loves the creepy, the chilling and what these eerie stories teach us. Anishinaabe storyteller, artist and musician Isaac Murdoch shares a Wendigo story that will scare the wits out of you! Julie Pellissier-Lush is Prince Edward Island's current poet laureate. When the Mi'kmaq storyteller is not creating poetry, she explores the paranormal. She is working on a book about the spirits that remain after death, still wandering the shores of PEI, including the witch of Port-La-Joye. Who you gonna call when you hear a bump in the night? Six Nations Investigating Paranormal Encounters, or SNIPE of course. These ghost hunters live for a good scare! But Haudenosaunee group member Artie Martin's first night out with SNIPE at the Mohawk Institute Residential School left him with chills. For Dan SaSuweh Jones, a writer and artist from the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma, places like cemeteries are haunted for a reason and the stories we tell about them can serve some surprising purposes. He visited Indigenous communities across the United States and gathered stories about their ghosts, witches and supernatural beings.

These ‘tiny horses with giant spirits' once lived alongside Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island. But after contact with Europeans, they were culled to near extinction. Now the small but hearty breed is making a comeback, thanks to a growing number of Indigenous people. Artist and knowledge keeper Rhonda Snow was a small girl when she overheard some elders talking about the Ojibwe Spirit Horse and was captivated. She has dedicated her life to recovering and reclaiming the spirit horse and making sure the little ponies thrive. Madahoki Farm is an Indigenous tourism and gathering space in Ottawa and home to Stanjii, Kita, Sweetgrass, and Cedar. Trina Mather-Simard is the executive director and helps look after the spirit horses there. Ken MacDonald raises his Ojibwe Spirit Horses under a wide-open Manitoba sky. When he's not caring for his ponies, Ken plays French horn for the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Ken teamed up with Rhonda Snow, Cree composer Andrew Balfour and Anishinaabe hand drummer Jodi Contin and they created The Spirit Horse Returns. Jodi Contin shares what inspired her compositions in The Spirit Horse Returns and explains how her community of Wasauksing First Nation lived and worked with the ponies many years ago. Darcy Whitecrow and his partner Kimberlee Campbell brought the horses back to Seine River First Nation and opened Grey Raven Ranch. There, they run a program for youth that shows Ojibwe Spirit Horses still hold the important role of teacher and helper for the Anishinaabe.

The Mountain Valley Pipeline, which runs through West Virginia to Virginia is on the verge of completion following intense legislative and legal battles. This episode reminds us of the danger in this, and amidst such battles, Appalachians Against Pipelines shows us what might be possible if we allow ourselves to imagine a world outside of extraction. Lark Elodea joins Ayana to discuss the relentless and direct activism Appalachians Against Pipelines has been doing to stop the pipeline, build community resistance, and advocate for the needs of their communities in the face of developers, oil and gas advocates, and a continued disregard for Appalachian voices. Lark roots the conversation in reverence for the land and the complex legacies of violence and oppression within it. Fighting against the pipeline is, as Lark says, “not only fighting for a world with no pipelines, but also no borders, or prisons or colonialism.” Our decisions here matter for communities and matter for the collective future we are building. Lark is a person of settler descent living in the beautiful mountains of Appalachia. They have been working with Appalachians Against Pipelines in the campaign resisting the 300+ mile Mountain Valley Pipeline for over 4 years, and have lived in the region for years longer. Lark is one of many, many pipeline fighters and water protectors and forest defenders contributing to the fight against reckless fossil fuel infrastructure and extraction (across Appalachia, across Turtle Island, and all over the world).

What are the relationships and resonances between anarchism and Islam? Anarchism, through its Western manifestation, claims "no gods, no masters" as fundamental to anti-authoritarianism, both in theory and practice. Through that lens, what "relationships and resonances" then exist between anarchism and a religious and spiritual system such as Islam? And, ultimately, what can self-identified anarchists in predominately non-Muslim majority Western nations, and practitioners of Islam the world-over, learn from one another? Piercing through Orientalist, Islamophobic stereotypes of the "Muslim" in the Western imaginary, even in spaces that claim to be opposed to such shallow, two-dimensional characterizations, is crucial in forging solidarities against the common enemies of liberation and social justice: heteropatriarchy, authoritarianism, fascism, capitalism, colonialism. In reading 'Islam and Anarchism,' several key truths become abundantly clear: Islam is not a monolith, and was never intended to be; Islam contains, as Dr. Abdou describes it, "micro (and macro) anti-authoritarian commitments" -- ethics of disagreement, hospitality, and community making; Islam, in practice, is incongruitous with modern nation-states — in both its liberal-democratic and dictatorial forms. With these understandings, Dr. Abdou lays critiques of the narrow frames self-described anarchists operate within, but also toward Muslims and the contradictory relationship they have with national identities within their various geographical and historical contexts. Dr. Mohamed Abdou graduated from Queen's University with a Doctorate in Cultural Studies and holds an BAH/MA in Sociology. He is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell University's Einaudi Center's Racial Justice Program and is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the American University of Cairo. He is also an interdisciplinary scholar of Indigenous, Black, critical race, and Islamic studies, as well as anti-racist feminist, gender, sexuality, women, decolonial and post-colonial studies with extensive fieldwork experience in the Middle East-North Africa and Turtle Island. He is a self-identifying Muslim anarchist and diasporic settler of color living on Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫʼ, Anishinaabe-Haudenosaunee territory. He teaches (under) graduate courses on Settler-colonialism, Anti-Colonialism, and Anti-Imperialism, Intimacy, Family & Kinships, North African, Islamic, BIPOC and radical newest social movements, as well as on Research Methodologies, the Global Political Economy of Development, (Pre-) Modern/Classical and Poststructuralist Political Philosophy and Social Theory at the American University of Cairo, as well as Cornell and Queen's University.

This is Indigenous land.” - Dr. Kyle T. Mays“We need to keep the gas pedal on getting Congress to appropriate the proper level of funding.

This episode of Breaking Brave is so special, we are re-airing it in case you missed it. Dr. Edmund Metatawabin is a First Nations Chief and Elder, Cree writer, Author, educator, and activist. Edmund was awarded the Order of Canada for his advocacy on behalf of residential-school survivors. He is a survivor of St. Anne's Residential School, in Fort Albany, Ontario where he and his fellow students experienced physical, psychological, and sexual abuse at the hands of school administrators. He documented his experiences in his 2014 book, Up Ghost River: A Chief's Journey Through the Turbulent Waters of Native History available here: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/227773/up-ghost-river-by-edmund-metatawabin--with-alexandra-shimo/ (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/227773/up-ghost-river-by-edmund-metatawabin--with-alexandra-shimo/)  In 1992, Edmund organized a conference for other survivors of St. Anne's Residential School so that they could share their stories. He took their accounts to the police, spurring a criminal investigation that culminated in the convictions of five former staff. Edmund has devoted himself to righting the wrongs of the past, and educating First Nations youth on traditional knowledge. Edmund was the first born of eleven siblings. His father lived on the land, and was a natural resource harvester. Edmund was working on his Master's Degree in Environmental Studies at York University when he was called home to run for Chief. For eight years, he held that position; concentrating on economic development and education. He has adopted the motto “For Those That Are Not Yet Born” in his research and writing to honour the First Nation heritage on Turtle Island. His 2014 memoir Up Ghost River: A Chief's Journey Through the Turbulent Waters of Native History was a shortlisted nominee for the Governor General's Award for English-language non-fiction at the 2014 Governor General's Awards. His publications also include: Hanaway (2004) and Harvesting: Cree Hunting and Gathering Techniques (2008). In 2010, he was part of the Our Story Advisory Committee for the Canadian Aboriginal Writing Challenge, run by the Historica-Dominion Institute.  Toward the end of the episode, you'll hear directly from Edmund's nephew, Terry Metatawabin, Edmund's grandson, Braiden Metatawabin, and his partner Daanis McDonald. You'll also hear a song performed by Edmund's son Shannin Metatawabin.

We understand the gravity of this trust and appreciate it beyond what words can describe. Our hope for this episode is an echo of Edmund's hope: That you listen and share the truth with the people in your life. That you pass on what you learn to your children, your family, and your community so that all future generations can know and understand the truth and history of Canada's enduring, genocidal, and horrific treatment of our First Nations people.

This recording from September 5, 2022. Signum MA student Nadia Schafer will present her thesis “One Strange (s) Elf: Deep Ecology, Decolonization and the Radical Hope of Legolas Greenleaf ” and respond to questions from the audience in an interactive Thesis Theater. The discussion will be facilitated by Nadia's thesis supervisor, Dr. Sara Brown. Abstract: While living through a national reckoning, a global pandemic, and a worsening climate change crisis, what The Lord of the Rings can offer to those living on Turtle Island in the 2020s? This thesis argues that the text offers its reader radical hope through the ecocritical voice through the character Legolas Greenleaf. Strongly influenced by the writings of Joanna Macy, Donna Haraway, and Robin Wall Kimmerer, “One Strange (s)Elf” explores the narrative of Legolas' role in the process of decolonization and restoration in Middle-earth. Using a postcolonial analysis paired with Deep Ecology, this thesis establishes an Indigenous reading of the Silvan Elves. Building of this reading, it further demonstrates the power of making Oddkin as an act of decolonization, explores the elements of the Queer Gothic in the depiction of Fangorn's Huorns, and acknowledges the power of shared grief. Finally, this work demonstrates how Tolkien suggests to his audience an alternative to despair by offering the choice to stray.

Embodying Reverent Relationship with Marika Heinrichs   What a pleasure to speak with Marika Heinrichs of Wildbody.ca about somatics, lineages, respect and repair - and what a delight to have such a rich and tender conversation in Rumi's field that sits outside of any rigid and fixed ideas of rightdoing and wrongdoing.    I hope you enjoy this important conversation.      Marika Heinrichs is the granddaughter of German Mennonite, British, and Irish settlers to the part of Turtle Island colonially know as Canada. She is a queer, femme, somatics practitioner and facilitator whose work focuses on the recovery of ancestral wisdom through body-based ways of knowing, and challenging the appropriation and erasure of Indigenous knowledge in the field of somatics. Marika resides on Attawandaron, Haudenosaunee and Anishinabe territory (a.k.a. Guelph, Ontario). She is grateful for the nourishment and support of her peers, mentors, and more-than-human kin.    Links: website: wildbdoy.ca IG: @wildbodysomatics Courses: wildbody.ca/embodied-ethics     Here is a link to a beautiful and important piece written by Marika which I referred to in our conversation - On White People Building Belonging Together in our Movements for Liberation. https://wildbody.ca/blog/on-building-belonging-as-white-people-within-our-movements   Some powerful quotes from Marika's writings and teachings:     "I believe that building healing communities is just as important as having access to individualized healing supports such as therapy.       Divesting from appropriation is about both surrendering entitlement and feeling into the truth of our own peoples. I believe we are all capable of appropriation, and as a white bodied person I don't feel it's my work to tell Black, Indigenous, and other people of colour how to engage with their practices. I can share from what I know through my own journey into these questions, which includes feeling how intimately connected extraction, violence, and severance from the natural world are to the projects of white supremacy and Christian hegemony.   Lack of acknowledgment and consent, spiritual bypassing, claiming ownership and superiority, prohibitive costs, lack of access for the descendants of the very peoples from whom practices emerged, no sense of connection or accountability to our own peoples, normalizing cis, straight, thin, white, able bodies… the list goes on.    I want to envision a methodology of somatics that is invested in liberation right down to the roots of the lineages and histories of our practices. If we are not tending to the ways that this field has been shaped by supremacy, we are missing a core component of embodied liberation.    Practices emerge from culture, they are shaped by time, place, and cosmology. All of our peoples had practices and ways of working with the body towards healing. Even if we engage in the most consent-based, ethical, values-driven protocols with practices from outside our own cultures, we miss the crucial work of facing into the grief and joy of our own lineages and peoples. I believe that the unwillingness to do this is one way that the field of somatics can perpetuate white supremacy, and I envision new/old practices that reconnect us with our ancestors and carry us through mourning, accountability, and repair as white people. As practitioners, we hold power around shaping these conversations in our field, and in supporting these conditions with these we serve.        All those years practicing yoga are part of what shaped me and helped me to grow the capacity to release it for a practice that feels more aligned, more liberatory. It's not for me to decide who should or shouldn't practice yoga, or whether or not something is appropriation. Those questions can serve as distractions, virtue signalling that keeps us from the work of divesting from the roots of whiteness that lead to appropriation in the first place. I do know that the space that was left when I quit yoga made room for a new kind of connection to emerge that feels much more rooted in my values, and my lineage. I am not sure how we can approach practices such as yoga as white people without having something to share in return. A practice entails a relationship, if we don't know who we are or where we come from, how can we really engage in mutual connection?"

It was 60 seconds that changed Sacheen Littlefeather's life. On March 27, 1973, the 26-year-old Apache/Yaqui woman walked onto a stage at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles and into the international spotlight. The young woman dressed in a Northern buckskin dress rejected the Academy Award to Marlon Brando for The Godfather. The actress and activist calmly explained to 85 million people that it was due to "the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry." Fifty years later and the Academy has apologized. In this exclusive conversation with Unreserved host Rosanna Deerchild, Littlefeather recalls that famous moment, what led up to it, the fallout and what it all meant for the American Indian Movement and Indigenous people across Turtle Island in the five decades since.

He invites us to engage each one of our senses to see, smell, hear, and feel the world in a new way.    “I would pick up on these feeling of melancholy, because their stories would always end up with, ‘But that's not how we do it anymore, or what we can't go there anymore, or simply just a lot has changed since then.'” –Keyana Pardilla   Growing up in the Penobscot Nation, otherwise known as Indian Island, a small island located in Old Town Maine, Keyana speaks with elders as she seeks to find what was lost and bring this awareness to younger people.    “But we are embedded In a world of relatives, relatives, not natural resources.” –Robin Wall Kimmerer In talking about gratitude, Kimmerer shares a way to connect with all living things that is built on relationships, love, and care.

The truth about the US Indian boarding school policy has largely been written out of the history books. Started in the 1800s across the US and Canada, Indian Boarding schools were government-funded and often church-run. The goal? Forced assimilation of Native children into white society under the belief of “Kill the Indian, Save the Man,” which still contributes to how we see and treat Indigenous Peoples today. Sadly, the marked and unmarked graves of children have been found in the residential school systems of both Canada and the US. The total is now over 6,500 indigenous youth, having died amid accusations of abuse and neglect. Our guests, SunRose IronShell and Manape LaMere, update us on the current situation and the history of this generational trauma, and how bringing home the remains has become a way to tell the children's stories and hold to account these schools.

Wondering about belonging, mystical experience and religion with writer and activist Stephen Jenkinson.On this episode I welcome back Stephen Jenkinson for the fourth time on the podcast. If you're not already familiar with Stephen's work I recommend checking out episodes 14, 45 and 69.For those of you who are familiar with Stephen's work, you'll know that he is a special kind of teacher. I know he prefers not to think of himself that way, but my interactions with him always stretch my brain in really productive but often challenging ways, and that to me is in essence what it means to be a teacher.This conversation was no different.We got together on the occasion of the release of a new book that he collaborated on with Kimberly Johnson, called Reckoning. We touch on what brought about that work, but the bulk of our conversation centers around Stephen's journey to obtaining a Master's in Theology from Harvard Divinity School and how that lead him to start working as a Social Worker and eventually to the work he's best known for as a Palliative Care counsellor.Along the way we hear about his mysterious encounter with an angel at the Notre Dame Cathedral following a near death experience at sea, and wonder together about what it means to belong to a place, particularly for those of us who are relative newcomers to this land called Turtle Island.As it often happens after speaking with Stephen, I'm left with some questions that continue to haunt me. In particular, what it means to belong, and the question that we end with, does Christianity belong in North America?As usual, it's better not to expect any clear cut answers from Stephen but be open to having some new questions to consider. Personally, I take the advice of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who suggested the following in his letters to the young poet Franz Kappus back in 1903:Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.Stephen's website: http://orphanwisdom.com  Our GDPR privacy policy was updated on August 8, 2022.
