All is One: Building a Decolonized Future Together

In this virtual event we will highlight our regional native communities' anticolonial environmental justice movements. And we will join together in celebration of the relationships we have built this year, in antiracism education, healing and training, and climate justice organizer training.

Learn and engage with two native voices in conversation, Chairman Valentin Lopez of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band and Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy, Department Chair, Native American Studies at Humboldt State University. Dr. Baldy is Hupa, Yurok and Karuk and an enrolled member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe in Northern California. We will delve into the cultural reality and presence of the indigenous voices at the intersection of feminism, revitalization, decolonization and leading environmental justice movements to explore what connects us all.
