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. Myth making and ritual are practices that (re)imagine and (re)creates the world we live in. In The Ritual of Myth Making, we believe myth and ritual can be used as a tool for QTBIPOC 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 as a way to find our place within a cosmology of stars, ancestors, and healers.
As future ancestors, healers and facilitators we created a wider space for Indigenous identified people locally and across the world to not only create, but to exchange contemporary myths in our community 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.
