Where to begin? Oh, well I guess I can say I’m alive. I’m not sure whether any of you were wondering that but this is me confirming that I am, in fact, alive. FUCKING BUSY but alive. But it’s Tuesday and I haven’t done this in a while so I thought I’d bring it back … Continue reading

#lastnight at the @metric and @julytalk show. pure happiness. ALSO, want to know how July Talk started their set? by acknowledging they were on treaty territory and by explaining what that means and how settlers need to unlearn and relearn our relationships with Indigenous Peoples. 🙌 the audience clapped for that. my heart clapped for that. I am not First Nations, Inuit, or Metis but as someone who is working to be a better ally, I felt the impact of that, more so than a canned 1-sentence land acknowledgment that I receive in a university classroom. to hear that in a public meeting space felt like a shift towards having the right discussions about settler colonialism outside of academia. once I heard that, my respect for July Talk deepened. they’re definitely not doing the most when it comes to understanding Indigenous issues (we could all do better) but they’re doing something with their platform. and they played a rad show. 👍 🦄
last weekend⛷
yesterday was a good day. today is not. here is a squirrel. hope everyone out there is surviving this Monday. #monday
environmental history field trip to Elk Island National Park. this tree was one of three massive uprooted trees we came across. we weren’t sure why or how they were uprooted but the amount of earth that came with this one was impressive. right after this tree, we saw a really cute squirrel. today was a good day. 👍
history class field trip number 2: a walking tour of @oldstrathcona. grateful for being able to learn and practice history in public through my education and hopeful that I can pursue similar approaches in my career 😊 #publichistory #yeg
