From Turtle Island to Palestine: How have we been surviving colonization? Panel was part of the Land and Accessible Futures: Stories of Resistance and Survival Project. Land and Accessible Futures: Stories of Resistance and Survival project is comprised of three events, From Turtle Island to Palestine: How have we been surviving colonization? Panel, Air, river, sea, soil: a history of an exploited land online exhibition, and an artist roundtable, that will address the topic of Land and accessible futures by bringing together artists, educators, activists, and researchers – aka storytellers – from all over the Earth; from Turtle Island to Palestine, from Jordan to Lebanon, from Egypt to Tunisia and Iraq. Our storytellers, grounded in the lived realities of the Land from which they speak, will take us through stories of survival, resistance, and longing for liveable futures.
