Consulted with #KKLLC – Kanyon Konsulting LLC and we shared perspective.
Quoted from image: One of the definitions of the verb “to knit” is “to unite or cause to unite,” as in, “disparate regions had begun to knit together.” This act of knitting together means we consider our relationships with each other, and the land and waters of this region. We endeavor to honor the land and its peoples by acknowledging that this book was created and photographed on the traditional lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone people in what is now known as San Francisco. Throughout the Bay Area, the Ohlone* are known for their intimate knowledge and use of natural fibers to construct housing and clothing, and they continue to create some of the most prized baskets in the world. As many of us seek to use more natural fibers in our work, we rely on amazing natural resources, and we look to the past and to those who still use traditional methods to raise sheep, shear sheep, and spin fiber into yarn to make something of use for future generations. We look to the Ohlone who continue to practice a reciprocal relationship with the land that we are on in order to honor the life lived and the gifts that are given. Our ancestors were once indigenous to the land they came from, and we can honor and celebrate our various heritages while still acknowledging the indigenous people of the land we are on. Through knitting, many have learned about their own culture, their heritage, and their own indigeneity.
Through knitting, many have found community. Through knitting, many have learned and practiced sustainability and have developed a respect for the land and the life it supports. The presence of settlers (non-Indigenous peoples who live on these lands) is not neutral; it has had and continues to have devastating impacts on many aspects of life for Indigenous peoples. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people. Settlers need to recognize that our knowledge and way of doing things may not be the priority as we work towards knitting together. We would also like to acknowledge the indigenous people on whose land the publishers are located. The Piscataway Conoy Tribe in what is now known as Silver Spring, Maryland, and The Lenape in what is now known as Manhattan. —Co-written by Scott Territo and Kanyon Sayers-Roods, Co-founders of Kanyon Konsulting LLC Visit https://kanyonkonsulting.com/ohlone-c… for a deeper dive into any of these topics. *The term Ohlone is used to encompass a number of Indigenous peoples, including Ramaytush, Chochenyo, Tamien, Awaswas, Mutsun, Rumsen, Chalon, and Esselen. The Bay Area is also home to the Miwok to the North and Yokuts to the east.
