This week’s edition of Maya’s #MondayMotivation is being used to tell you that we are all living, working, breathing, existing, on Indigenous land.
Here’s a reminder that Indigenous peoples around the world were and still are fighting for access to their rightful land, access to basic necessities (i.e. potable water), access to their families after years of forced separation, etc.
While you’re eating your turkey today, think about what you plan to do to support and protect the people and the land that have done more for us than ever gets celebrated in “Thanksgivings”.
I know I have lots of indigenous pals (and their pals, too) who make art, music, jewellery, clothing, etc. Show up with your dollars for these local artisans, creatives, and hard-working community builders!
