The Henceforward is a podcast that considers relationships between Indigenous Peoples and Black Peoples on Turtle Island.
Through this podcast series, we take an open and honest look at how these relationships can go beyond what has been constructed through settler colonialism and antiblackness, we investigate what our mutual obligations and possibilities for contingent collaboration are, and much much more.
We aim to approach these charged questions with generosity and complexity.
We reconsider the past and reimagine the future, in The Henceforward.
