Erik Bringswhite

Erik Bringswhite willingly strives to serve as bridge, both in a healing approach and shifting of power to the community where it is required. He believes in reparative/restorative justice with liberation as the ultimate horizon, innerstanding (way deeper through a spiritual lens) that we are at the epicenter of pain and we must affirm, support, love one another for OUR survival and unfoldment. Erik is an arduous propeller of indigenous conscience; he exudes community and culture as medicine. He embraces a fierce but kind and loving philosophy where liberation, building community relations with a unique perspective on how to tap and address power so that it can be redistributed in an equitable manner. He is big on healing practices where folks learn to understand the effects of compounded trauma.
