Unsettling Ceremony with Sara Cadeau
What comes after land acknowledgments, and what should have come before?
We invite you to help sing the first note to a medicine song of healing.
The UNSETTLING Ceremony.
For uninvited guests living on Coast Salish territory.
Please make yourself uncomfortable!
Not from here? Through service and actions, you can begin to undo the claiming of that which was never yours.
As land stewards and guests, we can begin by understanding that the teachings and songs that weave through these mountains and waterways, from time immemorial, are not ours.
Can our own teachings, our own ancient animistic and infinitely connected selves, be pulled back in through our feet, our dreaming and our actions?
Can we use our bodies as a shield to stand between corporate shadow governance and land protectors?
Unsettle yourself and find out.
Let’s deconstruct the concepts of ownership and privilege. This circle will be a personal and collective eradication of manifest destiny. Backwards coyote medicines are afoot here.
World famous rents aren’t enough. Give of yourself. Be of service.
Times aren’t urgent. You aren’t needed. Just joking. You are.
This is reconciliation in action.
Come correct – to be corrected.
This ceremony will be witnessed by matriarchs and knowledge keepers of these territories.
You are welcome. Thanks for thinking this song was about you. It is. It’s for you. <3
