When it comes to connecting with your ancestors, you can do a lot deeper than mapping your genealogy or taking a DNA test. In this episode of Belonging, I'm digging into the why being able to map genealogy comes from an immense place of privilege, the beauty of making pilgrimages to the lands (both indigenous and otherwise) of your ancestors, and how to re-connect with your ancestors through your dreams and ancestral foods, song, and dance.
