Having just observed 4th of July, aka Independence Day in the US, this interview with Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks), founder of Heart to Heart Indigenous Relations Consultation is both timely and meaningful. Pulxaneeks’ work supporting us in remembering these kinds of connections, that we belong to Mother Earth, and what it means to be in right relationship with Mother Earth as well as with Indigenous people, is critical and important to highlight as it relates to all of these seemingly unrelated areas such as health.
In this interview, we explore her work in Indigenous Allyship Training, whole-hearted understanding of what it means to be in right relationship with Indigenous peoples & what right use of privilege is & how to cultivate it. We talk about the power of asking heart-based questions and how many of us are waking up to the displaced and unprocessed grief that many of us carry from our own lineages. Pulxaneeks reminds us that we’ve each been colonized at some point in our lineage, and the long term impact of this on our life experience and relationships. She shares how this affects being in Right Relationship with Indigenous People and what’s at the heart of cultural appropriation.
This conversation extends far beyond this hour-long dialogue, starting with a deep intake process that allowed me to reflect on these issues within my own life experience, and continues to provoke questions and awareness long after. I hope it inspires helpful reflections for you!
