Decolonizing Wealth with Edgar Villanueva

Edgar Villanueva's Decolonizing Wealth is creating a global buzz around the framing question, "What if money could heal us?"

In this powerful hour interview, Edgar unpacks the virus of colonization and its impact on philanthropy--who makes the rules, the choices to fund or not to fund, and more. His steps for healing our philanthropy include a proper recognition of the problems, which are critical, and a turning back to what might be termed Indigenous perspectives and practices around giving--seeing our work and lives as interconnected and providing equal voices to communities most in need and impacted by sub par funding and services.  We talk about the importance of the Native peoples view of life as "7 back, 7 forward"--meaning, living and giving in a way that recalls our ancestors and thinks about the world our children and their children will inherit.This is a rich discussion which reveals viable steps and solutions to local and global philanthropy.
