The Mashkiki Collective is a knowledge revitalization project for Womxn, Two-Spirit, Trans, Queer, LGBIAP+, Non-Binary, Genderqueer, Bigender, and Agender community members who identify as Anishinaabe (Anishinaabe, Ojibwe, Chippewa, Saulteaux, Oji-Cree, Odawa, Potawatomi, Algonquin) and/or Métis. Through this collective, we aim to reclaim our traditional roles as community healers in working with our plant medicines, revitalize our land-based healing practices, and examine approaches to ecological restoration that are informed by our teachings, stories, experiences, and lived knowledges. Through online workshops and meet-ups with our medicines, this collective further serves as a knowledge sharing community for us to have intimate discussions on how we can reorient our ceremonial, sacred, and every day spaces to honour our safety and existences. This collective operates in solidarity with TQBIPOC and WOC and aims to generate collective political, spiritual, and medicinal healing and support through our decolonial and ancestral practices.
