Excerpt from my blog-post for the First Nations Ireland gathering:
For me, First Nations Ireland is about exploring or unraveling these notions of who we are and where we come from through cultivating curiosity, creativity and connection across cultures. I’m keenly aware of the multiple identities or roles I play as surfer, teacher, scholar, activist, artist… and how we increasingly find ourselves having to take on new and different roles in a rapidly changing world. Our sense of identity is not fixed but much more fluid and dynamic. So how then do we navigate this shifting terrain and not lose our connection or sense of belonging?
