Affirmations

Join us via Zoom on Wednesday, May 18, at 7 PM EDT, for the final in a series of Intersectional Storytelling and get to know Bride Johnson!

Bridie Johnson, LMSW, ICAADC, QMHP, IBC, IFSD is Canadian Chippewa of the Garden River, First Nations, known to my people as Ketegaunzeebee. This is an Ojibwa band located at Garden River #14 near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada.

Their spirit name is The "Drum Maker". This name came from a ceremony in which they were lucky enough to have earned this year. Bride is the Social Justice Director at FairskyMI, a private practice with about 80 individuals that work hard toward therapeutic justice across the state of MI.

Bride has started to decolonize their practice modalities and has most recently started to learn their own language as well as other traditional practices in these efforts toward decolonization.

Bride connects storytelling as an Indigenous way of narrative sharing through a more vulnerable lens. They hope to earn your time discussing the intersections of Indigeneity and the 2-SLBGTQIA population and taking up space for their people to exist.

"At first they thought they buried us but thosewere just the seeds."

Experience Bride's story by visiting bit.ly/3vYN5Ve.

For questions about the storytelling series, please email Sara Krahel at skrahel@goaffirmations.org or call 248.398.7105.

Live ASL Interpreting and CART services will be provided.

The Intersectional Storytelling Series is made possible in part by a grant from Michigan Humanities, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
