Hi, my name is Monique Francis and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I’m a disabled monastic creatrix and crafty collaborator in collective care.
FYI: I live a fairly unhurried and unplugged life which includes a weekly sabbath and seasonal retreats. This means that my response to your email may take a few days (or weeks if I’m on a retreat).
I am grateful to live and learn in so-called Vancouver on unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) land.
These territorial acknowledgements are but one way to disrupt unjust colonial worldviews and systems – how else might we embody reconciliation?
