INDIGENOUS SOVEREIGNTY & PLANT MEDICINE
A conversation about reclamation of Indigenous use of plant medicines, and being in solidarity with Indigenous culture in Canada and beyond. How did colonialism and the War on Drugs affect Indigenous Nations' relationship to medicinal plants? Is there a resurgence of use of psychoactive plants in Indigenous communities? And if so, what is driving it, at this historical juncture? How can non Indigenous people support the resurgence and why they should. How do we understand cultural and spiritual appropriation, respect, and reciprocity with Indigenous cultures? And why honouring those values is a matter of survival for us all.

CANADIAN PSYCHEDELIC ASSOCIATION
The Canadian Psychedelic Association grew from a diverse group of individuals all wanting to do their part to usher psychedelics into the mainstream in a conscious and considered way. Our founding team includes people who have been active in Vancouver’s vibrant psychedelic community for decades, as well as medical and therapeutic professionals who are newer to the scene, but through their own experiences and research are waking up to the value of these powerful modalities.
