Indigenous Resistance and the Crisis of Mother Earth: Paths to Climate Justice - Day 1

Monday, April 22, 2019 at 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm

Room UL104, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

This first panel opens a space for indigenous leaders and organizations from across the Americas to share their struggles and achievements in the face of a changing climate.  

Around the world, indigenous communities and movements are revitalizing indigenous knowledge and ways of organizing to defend lands, restore communal self-determination, and protect Mother Earth as they confront (neo)colonial, patriarchal, capitalist and state projects that undermine indigenous territories and drive Anthropocene crises like climate change and biodiversity loss.

Two panels will be held; the first on April 22nd and the second April 23rd. 

The event will be moderated by Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment Professor Leonardo Figueroa Helland and will feature indigenous environmental activists from Mesoamerican, North American and South American communities in conversation with each other and the audience.

Presented by Amazon Watch, The Shipibo Conibo Center and New School's Tishman Environment and Design Center
