Geri Kakeeway, a member of the OPSEU Indigenous Circle, will be travelling to Guatemala next month. Co-sponsored by the OPSEU Social Justice Fund, the trip will feature visits to Indigenous communities where residents are restoring traditional midwifery practices. Geri is excited about the opportunity to enhance global Indigenous solidarity, a key goal of the Circle’s co-sponsorship of her trip. For the Indigenous Circle, Kakeeway’s trip is part of a recognition that, while Indigenous communities around the world may differ, they share a common resistance against colonialism.
