Join us for a dynamic panel of Indigenous land stewards and land defenders working to protect, preserve and restore their ancestral and native homelands, foodways and lifeways. While working to defend and protect their lands and peoples from abuse, they also stand in solidarity with Indigenous Rights and Land Defenders everywhere.

This panel features Gregg Castro from the Ramaytush Cultural Association; Miskitu land defender Jose Coleman; Tongan poet, organizer and farmer, Loa Nuimeitolu; and Professor of Indigenous Sustainability, Melissa K. Nelson
