<<<< ♥ >>>>

>>> Intention <<<

To delve deeper into this practice of Indigenous Right Relationship building from the roots up ~

<<<< ♥ >>>>

>>> The Heart Of It <<<

We’ve each been colonized & this impacts everything ~ I understand this to be the deciding factor that determines the outcomes & informs interactions between our healing Ancestors ~ Life has shaped me in such a way to share understanding about this, in heartfelt, in-depth & empowering ways ~ I hold my hands up to the Elders, Mentors & Village that raised me, to the many Aunties that kept me in my heart & accountable to my emotions, to the Ceremony that gave my spirit a home ~ I was born during a time of tremendous healing with a responsibility to the generations to come ~ I honor the place in your heart that cares deeply for the Indigenous People, I honor the unwitnessed truths in your being that need a place to be ~ This is where we meet ~

<<<< ♥ >>>>

>>---> Together We Will Be Delving Into:

> What it means to belong to a lineage ~

> How we’ve each been colonized ~

> What the long term impact of this is ~

> How this affects being in Right Relationship with Indigenous People ~

> What your identity is as someone who is currently on Indigenous land ~

<<<< ♥ >>>>

>>> Four Fundamental Truths To Affirm <<<

On This Shared Path of Indigenous Right Relationship Making:

1.) We’ve come a long way to be here right now, it wasn’t that long ago that our Ancestors couldn’t so much as be in the same room ~ Let’s unpack why & where to go from here ~

2.) In accordance with the teachings of my Elders & Village that raised me, vulnerability is a form of strength ~ Let’s become stronger together ~

3.) We are one anothers strongest resource ~ Let’s learn how to be with one another in the way of healing, feeling, knowing and growing ~ We belong closer ~

4.) You are a messenger of your Ancestors ~ There are unspoken truths living through you, passed on from your lineage ~ Let’s hear one another in deep & power’filled ways ~

>>> About The Facilitator <<<

Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks) is from the Eagle Clan of the Haisla First Nation with Nuchanulth and Lummi Ancestry. Her path of being a group facilitator, program designer & event producer was sparked 19 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’, Elder Care & Child Care. ​ Her passion for contributing to the future generations has made her a community oriented entrepreneur & visionary of next paradigm change. This has resulted in her most recent development called “Heart to Heart - Indigenous Relations Consultation”, which is based entirely on the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both Indigenous & Settler decent 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 honours the Elders, Mentors and huge family whose love she is a living result of and the Ancestors whose strength and resilience is flowing through her veins.

“The truth is, regardless of who you & where you're from, our Ancestors have been through a lot ~ There are many things that tried to obliterate all forms of goodness & we are living, loving proof that it didn't work”
