“The world is in our children’s hands”

Indigenous Youth, Land & Art

I came across this interview which describes first hand how youth from the Thunder Bay area were involved in a residency program through the Thunder Bay Art Gallery involving art and Land Connection. Through expression. Through renewal. Though art making. Through shared moments and experiences. Space to talk, etc. I think what is important is making the space, and giving opportunity to express, with historical contexts,

Indigenous Knowledge Conference Keynote, Andrea Landry

Thunder Bay is so fortunate to have a local Anishinaabe scholar as the keynote of this fall’s Indigenous Knowledge Conference.

Andrea was more recently featured in a Canadian Parenting Magazine where she talked about “How I’m raising my daughter to be 100 percent, unapologetically Indigenous” where she shares her values and knowledge as she speaks about, Indigenous kinship practices (IKP) in Today’s Parent, and stories of her experience as a mother and her reflections and priorities in parenting.

In this article you can read further about her journey as a mother and her lineages. What strikes me the most about her story is the stories we all carry, about our lives, and our roles in passing tradition to our families, and in building Indigenous stories into mainstream magazines. She has accomplished in so many ways though I wanted to share this article, see more here,

It’s vital that we teach children that an Indigenous way of life isn’t seen as an alternative lifestyle but a priority. 

Indigenous Knowledge Conference, November 13-14, 2018.

beSuperior Consulting operates out of Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada.

Being located in the north end of Ontario, means that offering an Indigenous Knowledge Conference here provides a unique opportunity for Education Directors, Health Directors, Entrepreneurs, Educators, Leadership and Chiefs and Delegates, Frontline Workers in all sectors, Elders, and youth and Professional Staff to come together for two days, to have a unique opportunity to experience What Indigenous Knowledge is. While  a conference setting is perhaps limiting as it is not on the Land, beSuperior wants to bring people together still, to think, remember, experience and show support for Indigenous Knowledge and the ones who truly ignite and work in this field often with little or no support.

The purpose of coming together is to build a place where connections can happen. What happens in events such as this is good for the spirit and good energy, it is also a place of transformation, change and new experiences.

Over the past two conferences as it was decided these would be offered twice a year, opportunities to bring together people where old and new ideas have shifted.

I envision a time where this knowledge is offered to all learners where all learners including my children and your children will know that we are holding space for them. Where it is okay and honoured to share without judgement with the intent of claiming, doing, believing and being ok with knowing this is a very old and sacred space.

As visionaries and writers we have been holding space for a long time. Having opportunities to share our insight deeply and carefully shows our tenacious love. Love is what keeps us doing what we do each day, from the early morning to the evening, and everything in between.

Details still coming.

Using Pinterest To Design things

I have lived near the Lake for most of my life and been drawn to its beauty. One day I went for a walk with my family and found sea glass in the jewel theme colours of lavender, pinks, clear, green, then imagine sand and turquoise themes, hence colours of the water and land near a beach. There are many ways you can go with this them.

On Pinterest, you would Create a Board. Match up colour themes to that main picture you have chosen as your guiding colour theme.

So I came up with: THIS

'S/he has a strong heart, S/he is brave, courageous.
