Climate Justice on Turtle Island: Truth and Reconciliation for the Land and Resilience of Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledges
Indigenous peoples protect 80% of the earth’s biodiversity, despite catastrophic displacement and forced assimilation while facing centuries of imperialism vis-a-vis settler colonialism. Panelists will discuss their lived experiences as Indigenous people on Turtle Island (North America), current efforts to combat the climate crisis, climate resilience frameworks, and challenges posed by settler-colonialism, extractive industries, capitalism, and globalisation along the way.
