This project attempts to showcase our desire to build relationships across collectives, and “benchmark” with other collectives how they’ve moved through conflict; because we know from our experience that conflict is inevitable in movement spaces, and want to get on the same page about how we can move through this conflict in a generative and sustainable way for long term change in the face of capitalism, colonialism, white supremacy, and ableism.

Indigo Rising

Indigo Rising is a collective of Trans BIPOC artists, healers, and earth workers envisioning a liberated world. We encourage our communities to tap into the relationship with self to build in ceremony with the ancestors while engaging land as ritual. We strive to increase accessibility to forms of care within our community while creating space for healing of self and the earth.

Indigo Rising - "Collective's Integrity Guidelines" (current boundaries & accountability to their collective's integrity that they pass on to those they do land collaborations with)


Our Collective’s Integrity Guidelines:


We engage boundaries as tools to help us maintain our integrity to our offer of labor.


These guidelines serve as a form of protection of our collective’s sustainability within this work as we collaborate with others. This is being shared so that those who work with us know how we prioritize safe space building and ethical practices within land, identity & community.


We do not offer our free labor to spaces that center the benefit of White settlers.


We hold a protection of our labor and energy as Black & Indigenous people by maintaining that our work be centered in spaces where the local BIPOC

community can fully access our healing offerings.


We hold a protection of our identities and our expressions of our spirit. We are willing to bear witness to the learning transformation of others as long as our trans identities and truths are fully seen and uplifted in affirming ways. We expect for the correction of misgendering behavior and the use of accurate pronouns for each individual

to become a loving habit of maintaining a safe space.


We hold a protection of Black & Indigenous healing traditions and technologies to be honored fully in our actions & words. We are in consistent practice of noticing, and releasing the ways colonial engagements to land and community can arise in all of us who

have been raised to perpetuate these violent systems. We encourage all those who our work touches to be within this same process of shedding violent colonial teachings and embracing the wisdom that comes from our healing lineages within the diaspora.
