The Circle of Life—Women as Life-Givers and First Responders
Indigenous women hold the knowledge and ability to nurture life, and in many communities they are also the first line responders to environmental and social threats to community wellbeing. This panel will explore: the roles Indigenous women play in supporting and upholding life from birth to death (and beyond); the resurgence of Indigenous midwifery; women’s coming of age ceremonies; and how to make conscious choices to treat food as medicine and our bodies as sacred. With: Cutcha Risling Baldy (Hupa/Yurok/Karuk); Sage LaPena (Wintu); Danielle Hill (Mashpee Wampanoag).
