Cutcha Risling Baldy – Indigenous Voices for Decolonized Futures

Indigenous peoples, deeply rooted in place-based knowledge, are leading the way in developing strategies on how best to approach climate justice and climate resilience. What does climate and environmental justice look like when Indigenous voices are brought to the forefront? How can we move beyond “land acknowledgements” toward meaningful courses of action for our shared futures? In California, climate action plans are drawing from time-tested Indigenous fire and land management approaches; Governor Newsom is launching a Truth and Healing Commission; and across the state, communities are participating in land return to Indigenous nations. Leading Indigenous educator Cutcha Risling Baldy will provide a three-step approach to re-imagining climate and environmental justice in California and beyond, focusing on concrete actions that challenge us to dream better futures together.
