Cloudberry Collective started as a conversation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous activists, protectors and dreamers.
Cloudberry Collective is a community built on trust, with the aspiration to keep alive the conversation that brought us together.
Cloudberry Collective shares a long term commitment to decolonize, re-indigenize, learn and unlearn together.
Cloudberry Collective initiates, facilitates and supports decolonial activities. The collective organizes structures and platforms to facilitate dynamic action according to emerging needs. When we dream and act together, we prioritize collective liberation for the global majority above those of a privileged Western minority. Those of us who benefit the most from colonial structures have a duty to leverage our privileged positions and redistribute resources.
In Cloudberry Collective we stay with discomfort and we let it guide us: we recognize the differences between us, but we choose to not let them dictate the ways in which we can come together in commonality. We cultivate the discomfort into knowledge, positive progress and unlearning opportunities.
When we reach out to people and groups on the frontlines to ask for help or guidance, they are compensated for their work and efforts (this applies to the Advisory Board, see below).
