Indigenous and Black organizers are leading landback campaigns, sustaining traditional practices, and revitalizing culture and language.
Presented By: Women Donors Network (WDN)
The genocide, colonization, and usurpation of Indigenous land that began with Columbus in 1492 have been carried within our society for more than five centuries. Today they can look like eviction, gentrification, destruction by corporations and governments, and policies that incarcerate and marginalize Indigenous and Black people across the U.S.
Yet our history also carries resistance and revival. Indigenous and Black organizers are leading landback campaigns, sustaining traditional practices for future generations, and revitalizing culture and language. In this series, you’ll hear from them what it looks like to address generations of harm.
Monday, October 3 | 10 – 11:30 am PT / 1 – 2:30 pm ET
This session will uplift stories of land-based resistance from pipeline protests to developing food sovereignty programs. We will hear stories about organizing, direct action, intergenerational conversations, and other topics that help create what it means to resist.
We will uplift intergenerational organizing and how ancestors’ work informs movements, acknowledging that we are creating sustainability for future generations. Highlight the interdependence of different communities – across race and geography – and how they come together to restore land to their rightful stewards.
Session 2 speakers:
- Lynette Two Bulls, Executive Director, Yellow Bird Life Ways Center
