In the face of large global institutional (economic, political, educational, etc.) obstacles to advancing the Rights of Mother Earth, it is time to explicitly state what we can and must do. This brief presentation is essentially a reporting out on what Indigenous Peoples from around the World are saying about activities and actions that must be encouraged and enhanced in the struggle to defend Mother Earth from human abuse and misuse. Dr. Dan Wildcat is the Director of Haskell Environmental Research Studies (HERS) Center and Dean of the College of Natural and Social Sciences at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas where he has taught for 25 years.
This speech took place of the 2012 Indigenous Forum, co-produced with the Cultural Conservatory, at the Bioneers National Conference.
