Episode #20: Self-care, Smudging, and Penguins

In this episode, Sandi Wemigwase, Megan Scribe, Jade Nixon, Cornel Grey, Michelle Forde, Sandy Hudson, and Nic Yieu consider self-care in the work of the henceforward. There is a discussion of self-care collectively vs. individually, Elder Jacqui Lavalley generously explains smudging, and dark sousveillance* is offered as a form of self-care.

*Dark sousveillance counters and subverts surveillance mechanisms that target Black peoples. For more information about dark sousveillance and its intervention into surveillance studies, read Simone Browne’s book, Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness.
