Feedback form is now closed.
Let's get all the Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous people in attendance to connect as early in the camp as possible so we can plan our time together.

What does a decentralized web bring to Indigenous knowledges and methods of resistance? How do we use this technology to resist differing forms of colonialism at its different fazes of occupation and erasure? It is integral that Aboriginal people have the space and time for closed group discussions to center our voices and knowledges. A tent has been funded to allow a safe space for meetings, collaboration and imaginings of Indigenous futures.

A number of people have been involved in making dweb camp accessible. There are many Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous technologists, poets, activists and writers in attendance. This proposed project programme is intended to contribute to opening space throughout the camp for us to connect directly with one another to start figuring out what we can do together throughout and beyond the camp.

Hopes & Dreams
The hope is that we connect and lay the foundations for a distributed web of connection upon which we can slowly build trust, connection, mutual aid and solidarity once we return to our communities, lands, creations and resistances.

This project is open only to people who identify as Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous.

Why Participate?
Opportunities for us to meet are rare. Lets connect- Organise. Decolonise. Indigenise.

Session Rundown
As a matter of priority we should all meet and connect as soon after the camp begins as possible. The format can be co-designed once we have met. This might include but not limited to:

* introduction of ourselves, our peoples, our lands
* introduction of our projects and work
* communication of our offers and needs

Please contact laniyuk@blockades.org if you would like to help co-facilitate this process.
