03oct7:00 pm9:00 pmTHE SACRED ROLE OF INDIGENOUS WOMEN IN THE PRESERVATION OF MOTHER EARTH: RECONCILING OUR RELATIONSHIPS TO EACH OTHER AND THE LAND

Event Details

Many Indigenous peoples don’t see the planet or the environment as something to be saved, but rather as an intrinsic part of themselves and their cultural and spiritual identity. This deep reverence for Mother Earth provides a different perspective for how we can address the climate crisis and a feminist lens that calls for a rebalancing of the masculine and the feminine. We will explore Indigenous cosmology and ideology and its relation to the rise of Indigenous women who are leading Indigenous climate movements around the world.
