IW2SHRC Looking For Indigenous Contributers
tānisi! The Indigenous Women & Two Spirit Harm Reduction Coalition has begun a research project exploring narratives around decolonization and so-called “solidarity practices” on Turtle Island and are currently looking for contributors. We are offering an honorarium of $50-$250 per piece depending on the undertaking. The project will include the work of Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island (and is open to Indigenous contributers only). We will also consider work around marginalized Indigenous identities (ie. Black Indigenous identities) or work considering colonialism on Turtle Island on a global level. Preference will be given to women, Two-Spirit peoples, LGBT*Q Indigenous peoples, and youth. Please send us a brief description of the submission you would like to undertake. When the project is complete it will be published on the IW2SHRC’s website so it is completely accessible to our communities.
Deadline for abstract: August 1st.
Deadline for submissions: August 16th.
Submit abstracts to the collective: firstname.lastname@example.org
Topics the IW2SHRC is interested in exploring in their research: HIV/AIDS activism within Indigenous communities; Two-Spirit resistance; Indigenous feminist resistance; prison abolition; language reclamation; education; resistance to foster care and contemporary social work practice; disability and the medicalization of Indigenous bodies; Indigenous sex offenders and intergenerational trauma; and Harm Reduction. The research project will also include more introductory aspects of decolonization praxis including: Land Acknowledgement Protocol; Names of Indigenous Territories and Nations; Creating Reciprocity with Urban Indigenous Peoples; The Use of the Term “Settler”; The Politics of Insurrection: What Does Solidarity Mean as a White “Race Traitor”; and Black Indigenous Identities on Turtle Island.
kinanākomitin QPIRG Concordia for granting us their research stipend and making this work possible.
Contribute to our research project, wooo yaaaahhh. Also spread widely / let your Indig freinds know!!
also, pls don’t tell me the community is ‘trying’ by creating alternative prides or whatever because those events are still super white dominated, still structured within the queer = who you fuck/how much you fuck paradigm, still value masculinity, and still give space to so many abusers, racists, appropriaters, shitty cis white gay dudes, etc. Not just in the spaces they create but within their programming, too.
