We are all related. By that we mean human to human, to the beings on the land and in the sea, to the sky, to the land and to the spiritual world. If we pay attention to the signs around us, we may notice that we need to listen more attentively, and with our hearts, to all that we are in relationship with. Indigenous worldviews are holistic. Colonial structures, which are hierarchiacal by nature, have taught us to prioritize some relationships, while ignoring others. Responsibilty is the sister of relationship. As many of us from colonial cultures are just now beginning to realize, neglecting these relationships has meant ignoring our responsibilities in maintaining them. Only by returning to a holistic system can we understand how to stabilize the natural, political, and social imbalances that now threaten to tear our world apart. Each of the keynote speakers shares with us a lens belonging to the whole. It is through these many lenses that we come t know more about all our relations and our responsilibities to each.


The STA Convention is an annual professional development opportunity planned by teachers for teachers. We are currently accepting vendor and workshop proposals for the 2022 STA Convention. For inquiries please email
