Valentines to My Ancestors
Valentines to My Ancestors 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.
WHO THIS IS FOR
This project is for peoples interested in decolonizing our cultural practices by strengthening 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!).
