The stories that we tell about ourselves are important to sustaining a sense of who we are in this place. In this session, we will explore how changing the stories that we tell about ourselves, especially our white/settler selves, can work to both implicate us in the colonial narrative, and, potentially invite us into anti-racist actions / a less oppressive future.
