Protecting Mother Earth: The history, legacy, and possibilities as experienced by Native Americans

The ORCRN and CELDF are honored to be able to provide the space on Wednesday, April 14th to learn from tribal members about the history and realities of environmental justice, traditional ecological knowledge, and the emergence of rights of nature laws as experienced, understood, and advocated by Native American tribes. Learn More.

If American Indians are to experience real environmental justice – which means not only ending the poisoning of their environments but also regaining access to and protection of their sacred sites and ancient territories – it means confronting a “state built on the pillars of capitalism, colonialism, and white supremacy.”  Dina Gilio-Whitaker from “As Long As Grass Grows”
