Hear from Indigenous Women leaders – the realities of their nations, how indigenous women are being particularly impacted, and Indigenous Women’s priorities and demands.

Indigenous Peoples protect 50% of the world’s land, but Indigenous Peoples territories, lands, sacred sites and resources continue to be stolen, seized, militarized, and/or threatened without Free, Prior and Informed Consent. Indigenous Peoples bodies, water, air, and land disproportionately bear the brunt of environmental pollution and climate change, and Indigenous women are particularly impacted.
