We invite you to become familiar with the land of where you reside – even if it is not the land of where you were born. Become familiar with any treaties that may exist that identify where your home is, and most importantly begin to understand who the original stewards were. The original Ancestors of that land – whether you are in an urban highrise in Singapore, a suburb in the UK or a cabin in the woods in northern Alberta – when we understand where we live, we come into relation with the Earth and her original peoples.
The world has been colonized over, and yet we still have an opportunity to support each other and the Indigenous peoples of today and stand in sacred allyship – this is how we heal as a collective.
This is how we step into the prayer of Unity.
Divine Roots is committed to maintaining this page with constant resources to help understand and to support anyone, especially Canadians, in understanding the TRUTH in the history of this land and its original peoples.
Many did not learn this in school and only now is the true history being shared, and so Divine Roots believe it is our role – especially if we live in North America and are not of Indigenous descent, to bear witness, unlearn, listen and learn.
