Melina Laboucan-Massimo is Lubicon Cree from Little Buffalo, in the heart of the Northern Alberta tar sands, a community heavily impacted by logging, fracking, and oil and gas extraction. In this talk, she will draw upon Indigenous worldviews and knowledge, which stem from thousands of years of intricate, reciprocal relationships with and responsibilities to Mother Earth. She will argue that solving the climate crisis can only be done through a global paradigm shift back to understanding and living within the natural laws of our Earth, and through a prioritization of Indigenous sovereignty.
