Sixth World Solutions staff and partners will share their experience on advocating for the rights of Indigenous Peoples to support community-led place-based solutions rooted in the traditional knowledge and worldviews of the Diné people. We will begin with a brief background of the interconnected challenges and historic conditions created by unsustainable energy economies, monopolization of resources and federal policies aimed to further eliminate traditional lifeways and assimilate Indigenous peoples into western systems of power. From there we will share our work in addressing the resulting conditions faced by our communities by centering healing and our traditional values of kinship. It is our hope that through this panel we can give participants food for thought on what's possible when Indigenous-led solutions are fully resourced and supported and the pathways forward that can help others become allies and accomplices in healing our lands, our communities, and restoring our responsibility to all life.
