Walking in Good Relations – A Decolonial Board Game

As lots of you probably know, our ever-growing collection of Unusual Items includes many board games, from the classic to the cutting edge. We’re excited to be adding a new, local board game to our collection just in time for Indigenous History Month – Walking in Good Relations: A Sínulkhay & Ladders Game for Unlearning Anti-Indigenous Racism.

Walking in Good Relations is a re-written, re-focused, completely new version of Ta7talíya’s award-winning giant decolonial board game. It’s less university, more universal in the language and examples, plus the outcomes apply across Indigenous Territories. So, wherever you are, you and your students or family or organization can relearn how you relate to Host Nations, local languages and histories. The game also shares ways to take better care of yourself and each other throughout the journey.

Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee belongs to Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation). She is a decolonial creative & strategist living and working in her ancestral homelands on the shared territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples also known as the City of Vancouver. Through facilitated workshops, workbooks and games, Ta7talíya’s mission is to catalyze social change to transform colonial narratives & impacts. More specifically, she creates work to support everyone in unlearning anti-Indigenous racism and implementing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action # 92.
