The Indigenous Environmental Movement

Nov. 6, 2019 The Exploratorium, San Francisco

Wednesday, November 6th, 6pm
@ The Exploratorium
San Francisco, CA

With Mark Tilsen (Oglala Lakota), Isabella Zizi (Northern Cheyenne, Arikara, Muscogee) and Melinda Micco (Seminole Nation of Oklahoma); moderator Julian Brave NoiseCat (Secwepemc/St’at’imc)

Three Indigenous millennial activists will speak to the role of indigenous peoples in protecting water, land and biodiversity in the face of environmental and moral hazards including fossil fuel extraction and climate change.

This panel is part of the series Alcatraz: An Unfinished Occupation, organized by Alcatraz Canoe Journey with The Natural History Museum, the California Historical Society, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Exploratorium, the Presidio Trust, and the San Francisco Public Library. The series includes Alcatraz Is Not an Island, a special issue of SFMOMA’s Open Space magazine edited by Julian Brave Noisecat, Narrative Change Director for The Natural History Museum.

The Alcatraz Occupation launched the current era of Indigenous rights and remains a guiding light for resistance, resilience and a more just relationship between people and planet in an era of peril.
