Dear Friends, Family, and Supporters,
We are seeking support by way of donations, words of encouragement, and by sharing the news with your networks. Financial contributions will go directly to the diverse folks helping me with the manuscript, editing, and publishing process, including honorariums for those involved in sharing circles and check-ins to guide this work. Every donation, no matter the size, will make a significant impact in bringing this project to fruition.
**A portion of any and all proceeds of the book will be shared equitably among several BIPOC and Ecological Justice causes that will be determined by consensus with the Anishinaabekweg of “Nibi Emosaawdamajig – Those Who Walk for the Water” and the Sacred Water Circle.
~ More About this Project~
In 2016, in partnership with Indigenous Elders, knowledge holders, and friends, I embarked on an intricate learning journey to find out what might happen if settlers such as myself began to do what Elders such as Grandfather William Commanda-ba have been telling us: "Remember our Original Instructions".

The response to this work has been truly incredible. I am humbled and profoundly grateful to everyone who has so enthusiastically encouraged me to turn this writing into a book for wider audiences. Now we are in the process of evolving these interwoven stories of relational trauma recovery, buried cultural memory, and critical spirituality into an accessibly written book so that more people can engage in this important conversation.
Just as valuable as a financial contribution, I would love your words of affirmation about the work if you have engaged with it so far. Testimonials warm my heart and remind me to keep going. You can also support me by spreading the word about this campaign.
**Please share the GoFundMe link with your network, friends, and social media connections - anyone who may be interested in supporting our work.
I deeply appreciate your consideration and support. Thank you for being a part of this journey.
With warmth and respect,
