Resilience: Walking in Ancestral Footprints, Carrying Our Medicine

This year’s theme "Resilience: Walking in Ancestral Footprints, Carrying Our Medicine” is who we are as Indigenous peoples and our journey—where we came from and where we are going. It speaks to the many different directions and cultures we come from, what was taken from us, what was lost along the way. We survived calling upon the cultural strength, resilience and Indigenous knowledge we carry with us into the future: our medicine.  It speaks to the deep cultural roots we come from and the deep roots we need in our movement to lead in social change in ending the violence across all relations. With deep roots, we cannot be washed away.  Let us all walk together on this journey!
