Decolonize Your Destiny

Welcome to Decolonize your Destiny! DYD asks guests to share how they decolonize their lives. Decolonization is the process of becoming self-sovereign and this is where the power lies. It is the untangling of the colonizer’s limitations placed on our minds and bodies by unlocking and remembering the indigenous wisdom that lives within us all. Although the colonization process in the United States began centuries ago, the tenants of colonization have been normalized and woven into the social, economic, cultural, and political fabric of our nation. The colonized mind controls what we eat, use for medicine, what we read, how we speak to each other, love each other, process our emotions and more. Every single part of our lives has been colonized with the intention of creating subordinates that have been assimilated into a system that only privileges a select few.
