Presented in partnership by the Sacred Land Film Project and David Brower Center
The Brower Center and Sacred Land Film Project will host a powerful two–part program exploring local indigenous perspectives on environmental and social resilience.
The first evening focuses on the critical role sacred places play in supporting biodiversity: according to the World Bank, indigenous peoples make up just 4 percent of the planet's population, yet their lands contain 80 percent of the Earth's species, making indigenous groups crucial allies in the fight to protect biodiversity.
Join us for an evening of conversation, film shorts, and a post–program community reception highlighting efforts to restore native cultural and biological heritage.
Ann Marie Sayers (Mutsun Ohlone), founder of Indian Canyon and Director of Costanoan Indian Research, Corrina Gould (Chochenyo Ohlone), co–organizer for Indian People Organizing for Change, and Pennie Opal–Plant (Yaqui, Choctaw and Cherokee), one of the founders of the Idle No More San Francisco Bay Area Chapter and the Refinery Corridor Healing Walks, will share their work from the front lines. SLFP project director Toby McLeod will host the evening.
