Hosted by Sogorea Te Land Trust, join this FREE online event Wednesday June 24, 6:00-8:00PM PST // 9:00-11:00 PM EST. Facilitated by Dr. Fuifuilupe Niumeitolu and Nazshonnii Brown.

Description from event site: “At this time of pandemic and unrelenting settler colonial violence in our world, we invite you and your families to join our conversation with three internationally recognized Indigenous women leaders at the forefront of decolonization movements.”

“Please join us for Women Warriors: Indigenous Women protecting the sacred with Chief Caleen Sisk, (Winnemem Wintu), Kumu Pua Case (Kanaka Maoli) and Tribal Spokeperson Corrina Gould, (Lisjan Ohlone).”

“Through their respective and collective work, they protect their ancestral Sacred sites: Hawaiʻi’s Mauna Kea, the McCloud River in Northern California, and the West Berkeley Shellmound located in the Bay Area, California. These Indigenous women leaders will talk about their formative work as culture bearers in Indigenous-led movements that center Indigenous knowledges and protocols, land rematriation, and Indigenous cultural practices. Through their work they build and inspire intergenerational, multi-racial, local, and global movements to protect the Sacred in their various homelands. Most importantly, these leaders will highlight the significance of creating collective and collaborative movements that honor Indigenous women’s leadership, and they will show examples of their collaborations and relationships of reciprocity.”
