Culture & identity, as values, invite us to lift up the lessons we’ve inherited and understand our identities as multiple and interwoven over the course of millennia.
We live in a time of mass migration into countries founded on forgetting. As a result, our peoples have been encouraged to forget their stories, languages, pain, and wisdom, leaving us especially vulnerable to empires we live in. Reclaiming culture and identity is a practice of storytelling, grieving, and celebrating, where what’s even more important than the restoring memory is the decision to reconnect with who who we really are. We challenge each other to honor what we do know-- and we know more than we can say.
