The Purple Thistle Institute is starting up again! We will hold our first 6-week seminar series on the topic of Strategizing Decolonization. This is a series of more in-depth conversations, workshops, and discussions on how to make decolonization happen! The Strategizing Decolonization series is in solidarity with the Idle No More movement and the long history of indigenous resistance by all colonized people.
