Ifátùmínínú's current ancestor-led work includes teaming up with her sister, Wendy Firven Smith, to help native New Orleanians and transplants coexist in meaningful, non-exploitive ways via their organization Changing Landscapes.   Here, they engage the public in the Greater New Orleans area in dialogue about the changing landscape and exploitation of post-Katrina New Orleans. This work includes “Dear Transplants” which gives realistic advice on how to respectfully engage and collaborate with native New Orleanians of color. She and Wendy also co-curated and facilitated a panel series titled “How to Be a New Orleans Ally” with New Orleans Airlift.
