We would like to humbly acknowledge Tanya Tagaq as the author of the original quote from which We drew inspiration for our statement. Her poignant words on the burden of colonialism and its impact on marginalized communities' identities and cultures have struck a chord with us, and We are grateful for her thoughtful and insightful perspective. It is crucial that we recognize and honor the diversity and agency of different communities and uphold their right to self-determination. Thank you, Tanya, for bringing attention to this crucial issue and for your contributions to advancing social justice and decolonization efforts.
