About The Ritual of Myth Making

Myth making and ritual are central to indigenous cosmology. It is a practice that expands across time and space from Turtle Island to Abya Yala. They are practices that (re)imagine and (re)create the world we live in. In The Ritual of Myth Making, we believe myth and ritual can be used as a tool for 2STQBIPOC liberation.

This cultural project responds to this belief by creating new narratives for (re)indigenizing and co-creating with the community. This practice is one of the many ways we hybrid old ways (Indigenous traditions) and future ways (Indigenous futurism) of existing as indigenous peoples. For us as culture creators, it is a process of (re)creating rituals, decolonizing, and using storytelling in the form of myths and ritual as a way to find our place within a cosmology of stars, ancestors, and healers.

As future ancestors, healers and facilitators our goal is to create a wider space for 2STQBIPOC-identified people locally and across the world to not only create, but to exchange contemporary myths and ritual in physical space (in unceded Nisanan land, present day Sacramento) and through our online space. In doing so, we will co-create and (re)envision our way into our next world.
