Our techniques and intentions center Indigenous protocol and knowledge; some of which are learnt and some of which come from our particular ways of being together as sisters, as colleagues, as council. We transmute through Indigenous research and process. We enact ceremony through this research and process and we work beyond definitive borders of discipline, colonial geography, and time. Decolonial practices of embodiment – including space and time travel – are part of our work, our sharing, and our making as we build connections to ground, to ancestors, to future – all of which becomes boundless up to sky. We accept a radical relationship to futurity including a deep connection to past and ancestry as well as generations not yet born. We manifest what we know and what we know is possible.

Our techniques (in dance, writing, theory, teaching, activism) work
-to counter perceived invisibility (of Indigeneity)
-in the continuance of aesthetic, tradition, and ceremony (calling upon but not limited to our Indigenous heritages)
-through research and process as ceremony
-as radical decolonial love
