tl;dr - if you use the free Parks Canada discovery pass this year, please consider donating to an Indigenous organization. Reminder: This is Indigenous land.

I ...recently had a conversation with a friend who had heard me chat on CBC Radio about #colonialism150. She said she appreciated the perspective (which was new to her) but felt it was a little 'theoretical' and she would have appreciated tangible recommendations, things she could turn around and do tomorrow to change the relationship between settlers and Indigenous peoples.

I've been thinking a lot on this. Obviously, the past hundreds of years of colonialism can't be reversed in a day or a few small gestures. Colonialism is structural and deeply engrained in our daily lives.

And yet, as I have learned and been taught about Indigenous law and the treaties that govern the place I am in, there is a call for each of us individually to commit to living in a good way, in a way that recognizes that this is Indigenous land and that Indigenous peoples here have solutions that are both historical and futuristic. These are things that settlers need to tangibly support beyond lip service.

So, in the spirit of tangible and action oriented ways in which settlers can support Indigenous peoples and sovereignty, I liked this suggestion from Shane Hiroto K of the Titiesg Wîcinímintôwak/ Bluejays Dancing Together Collective, a great Two Spirit organization here in Tkaronto.

The #DiscoveryPass has become one of the most visible symbols of the #Canada150 celebration, with Parks Canada giving them out free to everyone this year. They've had #ShowUsYourPass campaigns, etc. and many many have gotten free passes.

But, the history of national parks in Canada is one deeply implicated in colonialism. The government displaced Indigenous peoples from their lands to create these spaces, and the parks have played an integral role in concepts of terra nullius, of Canada's pristine and untouched wildernesses, devoid of people (of Indigenous peoples, who were in fact THERE!)

I had created this 'alternative pass' reminding people that this is Indigenous land. And, as Shane has suggested, I would love to see this happen: if you are non-Indigenous and use this discovery pass this year, consider donating to an Indigenous organization in your area.

More than $500 million has been allotted by the government to the #Canada150 celebrations, part of which goes to giving free passes. I love Shane's idea of settlers repaying some of this to Indigenous organizations, a small (yet tangible) way of supporting Indigenous peoples who are resisting the colonialism of the state.

Those Feminists

It's that time of year again, friends: the only time we remember we have facebook!

Also FUNdrive.

For the full rundown on events, swag, and goals, check out ck...xu.com/fundrive

While you can call 403-329-5189 or pledge online at fundrive.ckxu.com at any time, it's extra fun if you call while we're live on Thursday March 23 from 7 to 9 pm. Whenever and however you pledge, make sure you mention Those Feminists and the incentive you're after.

Here's what you need to know about our incentives:

When you pledge any amount, we will give you a shout out on air and say something nice about you. We might not know you, but we know you are great. There may or may not be assorted CDs available in the station to people who pay their pledges during FUNdrive as well. Take one on us.

When you donate $30, you get a limited edition mixtape (not necessarily on cassette) curated by the ever brilliant Jos. She knows a lot about music and has rather eclectic taste. Prepare yourself accordingly.

At $50, we offer stew. Emma makes brilliant stews and they are not the gelatinous soups that might come to mind when you hear that word. It's like eating a hug. Trust us.

For $100, we offer our most popular incentive for yet another year. We will go to a movie with you. You can pick which one, and we promise not to complain about it (at least not until it's over).

If you're able to drop $150 on our show, you're probably a very busy and important person (we're broke. anything over $20 is a fortune to us). Like many busy and important people, you probably struggle on occasion to find the time or energy to cook dinner after a long day at work. Lucky for you, we've got you covered. Everyone's favourite tiny chef, Starrly, will prepare up to two weeks worth of meals to keep in your freezer. You are responsible for the cost of groceries.

While we generally welcome guests on the show to share their perspectives, some perspectives are awful and we don't want to interact with them any more than necessary. For $200, you and your garbage opinions can join us on air. We make no promises to play nice.

Insider tips for your most successful FUNdrive:

- you can pledge smaller amounts on multiple shows and have your final total compounded to give you maximum swag rewards

- you can pledge during FUNdrive week and then pay the week after if you're maybe strapped for cash at the moment

- seriously check out the events. The Cupcake Carnival is a Those Feminists favourite. See you there!
