To rematriate is to return the sacred to the mother. Join us today as we talk about the collective work of Rematriation with Dr. Dian Million (Tanana Athabascan), Michelle Schenandoah (Oneida Nation) and Marquel Musgrave (Nanbe Owingeh). In this episode, we acknowledge that rematriation IS the work of decolonization; we talk through Indigenous Feminism, Sky Woman, and we even make the connections between Ruth Bater Ginsberg and The Doctrine of Discovery.Dr. Dian Million, is Tanana Athabascan, and is a Professor in American Indian Studies at the University of Washington. She recieved her Ph. D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 2004.

She teaches courses on Indigenous politics, literatures, feminisms and social issues.Michelle Schenandoah is a Rematriation Activist, media maker, and inspirational speaker. She belongs to the Oneida Nation, Wolf Clan, of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Michelle is the host of Rematriated Voices with Michelle Schenandoah, an upcoming talk show highlighting the untold stories and contributions of Indigenous Peoples in Turtle Island. She is also the founder of the nonprofit Rematriation, an organization dedicated to uplifting the Indigenous women led movement of rematriation.

They are also co-founder of the Rights of Mother Earth and Water Beings Coalition.The Library Rematriation Project defines this topic, and they say, “By “rematriate” we mean “give back,” but unlike the legal term “repatriate,” which signifies a simple transfer of ownership, “rematriate” means something more profound: a restoration of right relationships and a true action of decolonization, aimed not just at righting a past wrong but transforming our collective future.+++Shout out to our All My Relations team that makes this possible.

I put this out there i really love how you guys talk. I'm interested in the things your recording and posting I'm in high school I was introduced to this podcast in my Navajo language class, myself and other students loved the "can our ancestors hear us" one. That was the first we heard of we were so into it I download this app just to listen and learn. just hearing the podcasts while I'm drawing and sitting down while doing homework it's like a new book to read about. this help me push up the importance to my culture that I knew my voice in my art had to be seen and heard, I'm work on this new project of my, in my art that's for the (Bears ears national monument) I not sure what to call it but the " faded rainbow" has been on my mind. just know that I love this podcast and others to.
Mahalo. Mahalo nui (Thank you. Thank you so much) for sharing your mana’o (thoughts, ideas, experiences, beliefs) in regard to language revitalization. Thank you for including Kānaka ‘Ōiwi (Native Hawaiians). As a kanaka ‘ōiwi, speaking our mother tongue in Goshute Nation here in Utah is a tremendous experience, mingling our breath with theirs. Again, mahalo!
