Decolonize First Workbook


Decolonize First, a liberating guide & workbook by Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee features 14 letter-size pages of process, prompts and links to resources to support your decolonizing journey. The workbook guides readers through personal and systemic framings and actions to shift out of colonial defaults and into critical consciousness.

Inspired by Ta7talíya’s experience in hosting decolonizing dialogues using her giant Sínulkhay & Ladders board game, Decolonize First, responds to the activation and excitement workshop participants express as wanting to do more. This workbook provides space and tools for the self-reflection and preparation needed to peel back the layers of neocolonialism that impede all of us.
