{ { { • Opening Words of Acknowledgement • } } }

Giving Thanks for the guidance in your heart that has lead you to this moment ~ Giving thanks & acknowledgement to the First Peoples whose Indigenous territory this will be taking place on, where ever you might be ~ Breathing deep in this moment into a place of honor & gratitude for the Elders, Matriarchs, Chiefs, Knowledge Keepers, Land Defenders, Truth Speakers, the Crafters & Makers, the Helpers & Givers, for the survivors of genocide & for the Youth who are the future who make up their Nation of Indigenous Peoples whose Home-Territory this event will be taking place on ~ Honoring the place where the mountains meet the ocean, the rains that keep this coast lush, alive & wildly diverse & for the many, many creatures big & small who call the Indigenous Territory you reside on Home ~

{ { { • Intention • } } }

To feel into the meeting place of relationship to belonging & the trauma origins of whiteness & understand more how this impacts being on stolen Indigenous land ~

{ { { • The Heart Of It • } } }

{ • From The Indigenous Facilitator • }

We come together to hear one another in deep & heart’filled ways & to gaze upon this place where our Ancestries meet ~ At the heart of it is a desire to understand more about how your relationship to your Ancestors affects your relationship to residing on stolen Indigenous land ~ At the heart of it is a desire to offer guidance & insight in relation to “whiteness” so you feel empowered with the tools to unpack this from the roots up ~

{ { { • Five Grounding Points of Clarity • } } }

On This Shared Path of Indigenous Right Relationship Making:

( • 1 • ) You belong to your Ancestors & the unending timeless lineage of loved ones who brought you into existence ~ Let’s feel into what’s needed to deepen into this & breathe life into the places where they live in you ~

( • 2 • ) You benefit from the countless sacrifices of your Indigenous Hosts, it’s not your fault but it’s your responsibility to learn how & show up in the impact ~ Let’s learn together what it means to put your privilege to right use in recognition of this ~

( • 3 • ) We belong closer & vulnerability is earned ~ Let’s lean into the hard to see places & reveal the tender truths that will bring our hearts near one another ~

( • 4 • ) It's not possible to engage in meaningful change without the risk of being uncomfortable ~ Let's be curious together in the discovery of wholesome discomfort ~

( • 5 • ) We’ve been brought together for reasons that are bigger than us, there are unspoken truths living through you, awaiting your full hearted arrival ~ Let's hear one another in deep & power'filled ways ~

{ { { • The Lay Of The Land of This Offering • } } }

• We will be spending about half the time coming to clarity on the topic of relationship to Ancestry & the other half unpacking all things related to “whiteness”

{ { { • About The Facilitator • } } }

Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks) is from the Eagle Clan of the Xanuksiala First Nation with Nuchanulth and Lummi Ancestry.

Her path of being a group facilitator, program designer & event producer was sparked 24 years ago & has been applied in a wide diversity of ways throughout her life.

Her background includes cultural based youth outreach with First Nations youth who are considered ‘high risk’, community building event production, Elder Care & Child Care. ​

Pulxaneeks was raised both in the Indigenous village she was born to as well as in & among the colonial construct of mainstream "Canadian" society. The work she offers of Indigenous Awareness Building comes from the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both cultures.

Pulxaneeks is a living, loving result of the coastal Indigenous village that raised her & all that survived in the lineage she was born to. She holds her hands up & honours the Elders, Mentors & huge family whose love she is a living result of & the Ancestors whose strength & resilience is flowing through her veins.
