Liberating Language: Decolonizing How We Talk

Join us for a potluck and an evening workshop on May 24th from 5:30 – 9pm with Lin (Migiziikwe) Gokee-Rindal, a Two-Spirit Anishinaabe activist, organizer and speaker from the Red Cliff reservation in northern Wisconsin. Lin will guide us in an exploration of how systems of oppression pervade our language, and how oppressive terms and phrases can sneak into our vocabulary without us even realizing it! In this workshop we will work on creating just, inclusive, and accessible language for our work that moves beyond buzzwords and towards liberation.
This is a workshop for everyone– all ages, genders, levels of experience, and walks of life are welcome. The content will be geared towards adults but curious older children would likely benefit from joining the conversations and young ones are welcome to play quietly.

Donations are suggested in order to honor Lin for their work and to cover costs of hosting this event, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds!

Space is limited, so please RSVP to trevanna@northwoodnaturallearning.org to reserve your spot.

Location: Paridae Grove is a private home and wild workshop space on a rural road in Unity, Maine. Park on the street at 573 Waning Road in Unity and come through the driveway and up the walk to the house. We may be inside or out back at a fire– you’ll have to track us! Please email with other questions or for further directions.
