Watch his Ted Talk via

and you will hear him again, reminding us - in his calm centred way - to breathe, to listen, to respond, to connect, to build community, to have an this moment.

I was just retelling the story to Honor last night, how he got us all in 2122 to make our own unique rhythm with the sticks, and how, in the middle of our ritual, during a session on Indigenous practices in a colonial context, we were asked by the Dean to be quiet, because the sound was reverberating throughout the building.

Meanwhile, the irritating noise of construction equipment building the Osgoode extension kept grinding, following the wheels of western progress. We all decided that the timing was perfect, demonstrating our analysis of colonial institutions that have no space for Indigenous rituals and knowledges.

I've been missing Kunle in recent months, and so much more now. I'd like to honour him in our CAP class, at the very least, and will share the video with others.

He was an incredible supporter of our Community Arts Practice program and formed the first CAP collective with Sara Witalis in 2010, advocating publicly for the program when we were under attack. We were lucky to have known Kunle and to have learned from him. We can honour him by listening to his words...and making an impact in the moment.
Warmly -

The best way to go carbonless would be to club up and buy a nuclear power plant that makes NH3 and then burn the NH3 in the diesels if they can't connect via undersea cables.
