Understanding how systems of oppression function and how our social identities relate within these systems can enhance cross cultural communication and ground us in the knowledge needed to change these systems and create better ones.

Cross cultural communication can be enhanced by understanding how Systems of Oppression function. We will explore our social identities as they relate to these systems and see where our privileges and lack of privileges intersect. Cultivating empathy for differing perspectives and tending to trauma release is key to healing longstanding social divisions. When we understand how historical and present day oppressions influence our sense of identity and underlying habits we create the awarenesses needed to re-wild and re-indiginze our selves in connection with our tribal ancestors as steward of the earth.
