Day 21: Settlers not only continue to benefit from systems set up by their forebears, they help to perpetuate them and the dispossession of others.
Sara Stratton has been tracing her family history and its connections with the colonization of Newfoundland. She has begun to decolonize her learning. In her family, she can see the forces that played out in the colonization that continues today. Settler colonials live on land taken from Indigenous peoples, and continue to learn in schools, work in companies, and worship in churches enabled by that displacement.
