April, Come She Will

Dear relatives, 


We have been in gratitude these last few months since speaking to see that many of you have continued committing your support to QTBIPOC storytelling. It is humbling to see your notes, offerings, and acts of financial investments in what is we continue to do daily: share lived experiences as people of the earth. 

As many may be aware, Indigenous nations are leading in national vaccination efforts and as such, we're proud and so thankful to report that nearly our entire collective has been fully vaccinated. We are grateful after surviving one of the deadliest seasons of our lives to know that there is some semblance of peace that can be provided to our people who have lost so much due to this pandemic and wildly inappropriate inaction by federal, state, and local governments.

Yesterday we took time to honor our Trans, nonbinary, Two-Spirit, gender non-conforming, and gender gradient kin as we always do, but with special intention to hear our beautiful land steward Mayam speak on Trans Day of Visibility and their work as a Black Trans farmer. We are currently transitioning our work to be more in person and look forward to the spring as Seeding Sovereignty's work has expanded to include a farm and garden led that may potentially host students seeking to do extracurricular work outside! It's been an honor for us to follow the story of Mayam and other Queer and Trans relations within and beyond Tiwa Territory, this last year and we're excited to begin launching our videos and upcoming work this summer. 

I have also recently transitioned from my role as Seeding Sovereignty's communications and digital director and Save the Stories project director to co-director for our organization. I look forward to continuing to not only making spaces for QTBIPOC kin to share their stories but to also help Seeding Sovereignty tell ours for years to come. Without the continued belief in BIPOC from across Turtle Island, we could not have come this far. 

Dawa'ae, iheedn, and thank you for creating the room for us to invest in folks who deserve to be seen, feel heard, and know that their dreams are being made possible by community. Our liberation is grounded in the knowledge that we carry you all with us across the threshold.

Please continue to take care of yourselves, drink water, and know we're out here ready to come back to a town near you as soon as it's safe again. In gratitude, 

Eryn Wise
