Episode 12: Kaitlyn Curtice – Decolonizing Faith as a Native American Parent

In by Cindy Brandt

 

Show Notes:

My guest today is Kaitlyn Curtice, Native American Christian author and speaker, and a mother of two boys. Kaitlyn shares with us how she embodies race, religion, & resistance in her identity and her work.

I ask Kaitlyn:
– how to raise our children with a decolonized faith

how Native American traditions provide a much needed perspective to our parenting via cultivating a relationship with the land, place, and mysticism.

Kaitlyn’s boys both started school and she talks about all her feels

Kaitlyn tells parents of white kids how we can partner together for a more inclusive world

We talk more about children and activism (popular Parenting Forward subject!)

…and lastly, how we can find the Divine in our everyday parenting.

I’m so grateful for this conversation. Tag us both on social media if you tune in and let us know what you think!
