In this duoethnographic essay, united in our desire as white settler scholars to trouble the settler colonial legacies still steeped in what counts as our “home,” we have written personal accounts of our connections to certain places.

Using composting as theory making, we make tentative conclusions about the practice of white settler response-ability and the possibilities of a more response-able relationship with Indigenous people and with our home places.
