Thanksgiving can be a time of feasting and family gathering, but, for many this is a period of mourning. This holiday holds a past of Indigenous genocide, suppression, and the perpetuation of colonization. At Barnacle, we are committed to understanding this story through the voices of our Indigneous friends, family, and peers.
Each year, on this week, we've made it a tradition to hand over our platforms to Indigneous voices and take a step back. The Raising Indigenous Voices takeovers have become something we look forward to each year, and resoundingly, many of you have expressed the same. Thank you for listening and being a part of this tradition.
This year, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to share the words and photos of Ellen Bradley. Please feel free to respond to this email, message Ellen directly, or through Barnacle's platform to express gratitude, ask questions, and let her know you are listening. Gunalchéesh (thank you) for joining us.
