The notion of a tree with a spirit is a difficult concept to grasp. Yet, when we see a native speaking with a tree we see a designer engaged in research. We will introduce philosophies of the ojibwe, the anishinaabe of this land, as a means for design process. We aim to understand this sacred knowledge so that it may not be co-opted, but honored. Design geared for authentic decolonization has to account for the ways oppressive power and colonial rule interact with one another to sustain such behaviors. This workshop will provide perspective for that framework.
