MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT:

// #ValentinesToMyAncestors is a submission-based qti/poc collection of messages-in-a-bottle (read: written and visual messages of love) to our ancestors, elders, roots, where we've come from.

// By channeling our love in a non-romantic way, we are flipping the script through reconnecting & strengthening those bonds as opposed to fleeting commercial holiday photo-ops.

// This project is for peoples interested in decolonizing our cultural practices by strengthen ties with their roots. Indigenous peoples who are interested in uncovering or preserving their heritage that has been lost to capitalism. People who are tired of the same ol corporate holiday candies-and-chocolate mess and want to do something a bit more personal (and yet at the same time… universal!).
