On October 13, 2020, Pachamama Alliance Co-founder Lynne Twist hosted Edgar Villanueva and Hilary Giovale for a conversation about Healing from Colonization as part of Resilience and Possibility in These Times.

The speakers’ lineages are connected from 1739, when Hilary’s ancestor received a land grant in the region of North Carolina where Edgar’s Indigenous ancestors lived. Today, Edgar is a racial justice activist, philanthropist, and author, and Hilary is writing about her journey of decolonizing her mind, healing from white supremacy, and learning reparations-based philanthropy.

The two spoke about the work they do to heal from colonization individually and in connection with one another, and shared a number of resources to support you on your own healing journey.
