“We are at a critical juncture right now – the future depends on literacy of the past understanding the structures and systems that bind us, so that we can make the shifts from cultures of make believe – a dominant culture that is steeped in a colonial narrative that are exclusionary and divisive – to one that supports and nourishes ourselves, each other and the worlds around us.” – Kim Haxton
