REGISTER: The Three Rs #3Rs

From the first contact with European invaders, Indigenous reproductive systems, matrilineal, and multi-gendered ways have been systematically attacked with attempts to dismantle our traditions through over 500 years of on-going genocide.

Presented by Crushing Colonialism, The Three Rs: Realize, Recognize, & Reconciliation is a unique opportunity to learn directly from a diverse group of Indigenous people who are living under and fighting against the violent realities of settler colonialism. Topics covered will include the crisis of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirits, environmental justice, healthcare disparities, theft of Indigenous children by the state, and what decolonization and tribal sovereignty truly look like.

The Three Rs was originally scheduled to be held on occupied Piscataway land known as Washington, D.C., but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its particularly devastating impacts on Indigenous communities this event will now be held virtually from November 16th-20th. Each day will feature a different reproductive justice related topic.

REGISTER: The Three Rs #3Rs

This is your opportunity to learn about the Indigenous people of the so called Americas. Presented by by Jen Deerinwater and Tsai, Native 101 [En Español] serves as a primer for the other Three Rs events on the 17th-20th, but it isn’t necessary to attend.

“Our weeklong #3RS institute is a unique opportunity to learn directly from a diverse group of Indigenous people who are living under and fighting against the violent realities of settler colonialism,” said Deerinwater, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation who founded Crushing Colonialism, an organization whose mission is to uplift and tell the stories of Indigenous people through multi-media work while supporting those doing the work.

“Topics covered at the #3RS will include the crisis of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirits, environmental justice, healthcare disparities, theft of Indigenous children by the state, cultural appropriation, and what decolonization and tribal sovereignty truly look like,” said Deerinwater, a journalist based in Washington, D.C.

Suggested fees are $75 per event for non-profits, $40 per event for individual registration, and $20-$0 per event for students and those experiencing limited resources.
