  • ANZAC DAY is an example of understanding trauma when we want to understand it. As a nation we are capable of acknowledging the the hurt and sacrifice of the past that has benefited our future. We are a considered a free nation yet we are built off trauma on our own ‘protected’ soil. I am not trying to take away from ANZAC Day. All trauma should be acknowledged. We just also need to acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander soldiers who fought and survived but were denied entry back into our free country. The soldiers who lay to rest and their souls longing to connect back to Country. We need to acknowledge the trauma of the massacres that happened in our own backyard, the blood and bloodlines, the languages, the traditions, the children, mothers, sisters, brothers, fathers that lay deep in our soil. We must acknowledge all trauma. Equally. We need to remember what was before and what is still happening now. Why do we fight to keep our country free when we let the trauma in to our own institutions. We are capable of acknowledging trauma. We have done, every year on ANZAC Day. We need to be better at understanding the big picture of our country, the past, present and future. We can stop  the trauma and heal together. We just need to do better 💕 .

  • Your heart is an underrated Lover. It takes a beating and keeps on caring continuously. Every heartbeat is a prayer, dream, hope, faithful optimism. Pour your tender Loving care there first, the center of your emotional life. If you can comfort, soothe, and reassure your heart, you can fortify and calm your life waters. So you can clearly see your true soul reflection and manifest in your life what your heart-drum beats out to you. @jaiyajohn

  • I’ve just finished the most EPIC week in China with the Kāhui Māori Fashion Collective. The lessons, connections and ideas I have gained from this hīkoi exceeded my expectations and I am grateful to have had the opportunity. My mission I set to achieve “is it possible for an emerging designer to travel to China on their own to source fabrics, manufacturers and agents? What are the growth opportunities available to our designers if they do this? What follow up support/ future support will be most beneficial to the Collective and other Maori designers in future? and who can Poutama partner with to provide this?” KIRI NATHAN - you have out done yourself yet again! The information, connections and experience you have shared with this roopu is priceless! You give unconditionally and lead by example. You set high standards for those around you and I was moved to see the roopu working collectively to support one another’s aspirations. 
A big mihi to @Jason Nathan who’s hard work, dedication and support allows Kiri to flourish as she does.

Finally, a BIG mihi to the Designers & Sponsors

  • It’s been almost 40 magical days being a mother to these two. •

I promised myself I would do things differently during this sacred time, this time around. •

I promised myself I would feel all there is to feel. That I wouldn’t try to figure it all out so fast. I would cry when I needed. Laugh when I needed. •

I promised I wouldn’t try and do it all on my own. I would ask for help. For love. For forgiveness when I needed it. •

I would protect my time for my babies. I wouldn’t let anything distract me from loving them. •

I promised I would listen to my body. I would worship it and love it for bringing another beautiful healthy baby earth side. I would allow it to heal and I wouldn’t force it to “bounce back”. I promised I would rest. •

As I near the end of the #firstfortydays I am humbled by the strength these two have given me. I am feeling inspired. Refreshed. Reborn. •

I am theirs.

  • If you live in the Hudson Valley, I’m excited to start getting creative with you! Join our circle! A few friends and I have begun a new endeavor where we can explore, support and share different creative mediums and traditions— the ones we may have learned from ancestors, or weren’t fortunate enough to... this Saturday it’s felting at Stone Barns! We are also helping to support different events imbibed with the wisdom of elders and more. On that note, mark your calendars on May 8th for a rare opportunity to sit with a Cheyenne Elder, Grandmother Margaret Behan. She will remind us about sacred activism, sacred earth, historic trauma, reconciliation and more. Previously of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, she has carried her message across the world... and we’re so lucky to be able to sit with her in the Hudson Valley! Hope you can join us! ❤️Jenny
6:30-8:30 Harambee/New Progressive Church Kingston. Free tickets available through Eventbrite.

  • Alumni Friday.  Today’s alumni photograph graced the front cover of The @Mulgamail recently. Claudia McDermott was awarded the Rob Riley Memorial Award for academic achievement. Claudia’s ATAR score was the highest of her Aboriginal peers score (it was impressive against any benchmark). Claudia hopes that she will inspire other Aboriginal students to achieve high grades and knows that her results also shatter the belief that Aboriginal students do not value education. A belief that our Follow the Dream program consistently disproves.  Claudia is now enjoying a gap year and returns to Perth later this year to take up her place at UWA (Science / Medicine). @abcindigenous @universitywa #australian #indigenous #education #Aboriginaleducation #FollowtheDream #careers

  • Us spotted girls need to stick together 🐞😊 Finally ventured off of my death bed to get a little Pachamama love and Ocean healing. Man-Flu is no joke y’all. Is it weird for a Brit in LA to say y’all? 🤔 for those of you who don’t know what man-flu is.. Its like the common cold.. Except for men, who, when they get it.. behave as if the almighty is coming for them (I rarely get sick, so when I do I feel VERY sorry for myself) 💀 💀 💀 So this week has mostly been spent eating all the garlic and ginger I could find. It started with a 5 gate self treatment going over some old points on my wrist from a few months back. Not going to lie it was a tough one. After 5 minutes I wanted to wipe off the Kambo, and no amount of breathing or surrendering was helping. Perhaps because I was TRYING to surrender (sigh). When my mind switched after that 6th minute, to NO I’m going to sit with this gift I’m being given regardless of what my physical body is feeling.. I suddenly felt very calm and aside from the waves of nausea before each purge, I sat in sweetness and peacefulness. I’m pretty sure this was my body’s way of telling me to slow down and take better care of myself after a crazy few weeks working with little sleep. Gracias Pachamama, Gracias medicina, Gracias Kambocita. 🙏🏽❤️🌟 #Kambo #Cleanse #Holistic #Healing #Parasites #indigenous #Awaken #SelfCare #KamboLA #KamboRestore #Reset #Restore  #KamboLosAngeles #IAKP #Frog #AlternativeHealing #HolisticHealth #HigherVibrations #Clarity #Calm #peace #WellBeing #PainRelief  #Fertility #PTSD #Detox  #Pachamama #Depression #you 🐸
