A talk on Loss of Culture and Afro/Indigenous Spiritualism by Black Lives Matter Speaker and human rights activist Natasha March.

Natasha takes us on a journey where she exposes how rigid Western views of knowledge have created institutional discrimination. She explains how colonisation and “West is best” methods of research have created generational trauma for many races and cultures. We’re also taken on a journey where Natasha explains her experiences with Spiritualism.

The talk, which took place on 12 November 2021, touches on parts of Natasha’s PhD research, including:

  • Decolonising ethnographic research.
  • Generational trauma.
  • Colonial trauma.
  • Effects of British colonisation and western supremacy.
  • Racism.
  • Critical race theories.
  • Place and animism.
  • Nissiology.
