Supporting Indigenous Communities in the time of Climate Change & Global Pandemic, March 24, 2021
“Supporting Indigenous Communities in the time of Climate Change & Global Pandemic”
A talk by Jessica Hernandez from Earth Daughters
In this workshop, we will discuss how climate change is impacting Indigenous communities and how these impacts have been exacerbated due to the global pandemic we are facing. We will hold space to discuss how traditional knowledge, activism, and art can be used to lead mutual aids that can support Indigenous-led community projects. We will provide a workshop that will provide tools and a guide on how to organize mutual aids, especially during these times to support BIPOC communities.
Register to attend via Zoom.
About Oberlin Indigenous Women's Series
In 1999, a committee of students and staff from the American Indian Council, the Multicultural Resource Center, and the Edmonia Lewis Center for Women and Transgender People came together in order to raise awareness surrounding this history of United States and European imperialism in the Americas and the Pacific Islands.
The result of their groundbreaking work was the first annual Indigenous Women's Series. The long-term goal of the series has been to increase the institutional awareness and support of indigenous issues in the curriculum and among the campus community.
The MRC hosts the Indigenous Women's Series bi-annually.
