Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth ~ Indigenous Voices on the Pandemic: the reality from their frontlines and how to help

10th June Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth ~ Indigenous Voices on the Pandemic: the reality from their frontlines and how to help.

Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth ~ EIndigenous Voices on the Pandemic: the reality from their frontlines and how to help

On the 10th of June, you are invited to a live Zoom call ~ Indigenous Voices on the Pandemic: the reality from their frontlines and how to help, hosted on Zoom by Clare Dubois. Indigenous people around the world face a higher risk from COVID-19, as many Indigenous communities already experience poor access to healthcare, and a lack of access to essentials such as clean water and sanitation. Often medical facilities are difficult to get to, and can lack the staff and funding necessary for the pressures of a pandemic.


In this live conversation, led by TreeSisters Founder, Clare Dubois, we will talk with representatives from both North and South American Indigenous tribes to discuss the challenges they face and what actions we can take to help. This will be an interactive call, so please bring your questions forward for our Q&A session at the end of the call. Sign up to our Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth mailing list to receive updates in your inbox.
Our guests include:
~ Jo Overton a Co-founder of Protect Native Elders and a proud tribal member of the Sicangu Lakota (Rosebud Sioux) people for Protect Native Elders fundraiser.
~ Jyoti (Jeneane Prevatt) the Spiritual Director of the Center for Sacred Studies for the COVID-19 Relief Fund for Indigenous Community Support fundraiser.
~ Atossa Soltani the Founder and Board President of Amazon Watch for the Amazon Emergency Fund.
~ Haru and Hayra Kuntanawa leaders of the Kuntanawa tribe joining us from Acre in the Brazilian Amazon for the Kuntanawa Circle of the Stars fundraiser.
