Black and Indigenous lives matter.
As a publication, we explore the complex--sometimes difficult--experiences of Korean womxn moving through sociocultural, political, and economic issues. As we work to contextualize and understand our personal experiences in the present moment and climate, we must also acknowledge and unpack our histories as a diaspora in North America, and the deeply rooted connections to systemic discrimination and resilience of Black and Indigenous communities.
In finding solace on Turtle Island (Canada and the USA), we recognize that this history exists on stolen Indigenous land and was built by Black people stolen from their homelands. Black and Indigenous communities continue to be displaced, brutalized, and murdered. We also recognize the full breadth of humanity of these communities, their joy, curiosity, imagination, and knowledge as much as their pain, grief, and anger.
We commit to our responsibilities in unpacking these histories and working towards a future of dismantling white supremacy and for liberation and justice.
