Honoring the earth on Summer Solstice, we just booked our trip to next week to attend The Protecting Mother Earth Conference 2018. This conference is Indigenous-initiated, designed and led for the purpose of uplifting the critical voices of those leading battles against the violation of our treaty rights and self-determination, environment injustice and climate change Together our Indigenous community members, tribal leaders, traditional knowledge keepers, land defenders, seed keepers, digital campaigners, and artists to learn from each other, to envision our path forward, and to dialogue about how we can collaborate more effectively and harmoniously to protect and defend the sacred. The event will include plenaries break or sessions addressing the following key themes: Water, Oceans, Fishers, Climate Justice, Extreme Energy and Renewable Energy, Mining Food Sovereignty, Just Transition, Rights of Mother Earth, and Native and Indigenous Media Strategies. So much to learn, so much wisdom at this time of extreme chaos and challenges in our country.
