CIRCLES is a radical-reading group that unapologetically holds space for healing and emotional development surrounding cultural, historical and identity issues resulting from colonization. With intentionality, we will create open dialogue that fosters solidarity among Indigenous peoples of the Americas and Black communities living in the city and build new practices while honoring the work of our ancestors and past movements of liberation.

CIRCLES is organized into two phases. The first phase is a Study Circle where we explore text from Colonization and Decolonization – A Manual for Indigenous Liberation in the 21st Century. The second phase, we will convene for a big closing gathering. Our goal is to raise solidarity between these communities that speak specifically to our need for decolonization and reconstruction.

We will read Colonization and Decolonization – A Manual for Indigenous Liberation in the 21st Century written and illustrated by Zig-Zag. This manual is divided into four sections, it will be allotted 2 hours for each section.

Our Network

Indigenous  215 | Social Working Group

We are also a social working group.

This group is for Native American, First Nations, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Indigenous peoples, and pueblos originarios. We welcome people from Native nations and Indigenous communities, as well as those of Indigenous descent. While we are based in the ancestral and stolen territory of the Lenape peoples, as Philadelphia is a multi-ethnic community we embrace Indigenous peoples from across the Americas including the Pacific and Caribbean coastal Islands.
