Honoring Mother Earth Through Sustainability

This event, which took place on November 23, 2020 4-5:30 pm, was an opening event in the Saul O Sidore Memorial Lecture Series 2020-2021 (at UNH). Indigenous New Hampshire Collaborative Collective helped to facilitate this event. We also are planning on uploading a shorter version of the video soon! For now – the full version is below!

This panel celebrated the Native Peoples living among us today, describing N’Dakinna (Our Homelands) and considering the meaning of cultural and environmental sustainability from an Indigenous perspective. We asked what Native Peoples of New Hampshire need from the citizens and institutions of New Hampshire in order to continue to practice, reclaim, and share the Indigenous knowledge and practices of both ancestors and contemporaries.
