Kobade teaches that we must recognize all individuals as links in a familial/community chain from ancestors, to the present, and to future generations. With the recognition of kobade, individuals are then called to develop kwe—knowledge of one’s self that is theoretically anchored to and generated through one’s particular ancestral and lived experience. Kwe is a deep personal knowledge that is produced by combining the past with the present through everyday actions. It creates an attitude and process of engagement with the world that responds to oppression by refusing domination of all kinds and generates new ways of engaging and living one’s grounded normativity. Grounded normativity is what stabilizes and motivates a life of meaning that participates in an embodied radical resurgence.
