This one-day intensive will fully immerse participants in discussions and activities that center on indigenous solutions to climate change. How is Indian country moving forward? We will look at how native peoples are going back to our original instructions to focus on issues such as “just transition” from fossil fuels, increasing mobilization, current place-based issues, and ramped-up cultural resource management.
This intensive is designed to be a blend of shared song, prayer, traditional foods, traditional arts and intense discussions about our shared mandate from the elders to protect mother Earth. We will explore how we can support our youth and upcoming leaders on the frontlines.
With Tom Goldtooth (Mdewakanton Dakota/Dińe), Eriel Deranger (Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation), Clayton Thomas-Muller (Mathais Colomb Cree Nation), Dallas Goldtooth (Mdewakanton Dakota/Dińe), Kandi Mossett (Mandan Hidatsa Arikara), and invited guest Melina Laboucan Massimo (Lubicon Cree First Nation) with many others. Native Foods lunch by Crystal Wahpepah (Kickapoo) of Wahpepah Kitchens.
