Honoring Our Women, Honoring Mother Earth

Panelists will share their experience and discuss the many links between violence against mother earth and violence against Indigenous women.

Kandi Mossett is Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara from Fort Berthold, North Dakota. She is currently the Native Energy & Climate Campaign Organizer with the Indigenous Environmental Network.

Melina Laboucan-Massimo is Lubicon Cree First Nation from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She is currently the Climate and Energy Campaigner with Greenpeace Canada.

Radmilla Cody is Dine from Leupp, AZ. She is a GRAMMy Nominee, multiple Native American Music Awards winner, 46th Miss Navajo Nation, and a survivor of and advocate against domestic violence.

For the past decade it has been documented that Indigenous women face higher rates of missing, murdered, and domestic & sexual violence in North America than any other ethnic group.  We will hear from Indigenous women organizing in northern Alberta and North Dakota against the industrialization of oil, coal and gas that has contributed to environmental damage and human trafficking.  We will also hear from local Dine women like Radmilla Cody, a survivor of domestic violence, who’s bridging the roots of human behavior to colonization and economic pressure.
