Living Up to Our Treaties: Multifaith Reflection on Showing up for Indigenous-led Resistance
On Tuesday, June 1, join us for our June Community Connector webinar. From 7:00-8:00 pm CT, we’ll spend time reflecting on what it means for us as people of faith and spiritual grounding to be in solidarity with Indigenous leaders. We will learn how fossil fuel projects like the Line 3 oil pipeline deny the treaty rights of the Anishinaabe people and explore the responsibility settlers and non-Native people have in advocating for Indigenous sovereignty, particularly by resisting Line 3.
This webinar is intended for people of all faiths and spiritual backgrounds. Because of Christianity’s role in the colonization of this country, we also will be discussing the particularities of this history. Understanding this context as we participate in Indigenous-led spaces will be helpful for all of us, especially those who come from Christian traditions.
7:00-8:00 pm: multifaith reflection on showing up for Indigenous-led resistance
8:00-9:00 pm: Q&A about the Treaty People Gathering, June 5-8
We invite you to stay on Zoom at 8:00 pm CT for a special Q&A about Treaty People Gathering: Rise, Protect, Stop Line 3. Indigenous leaders and allies will be gathering in massive numbers from June 5-8 in northern Minnesota to honor the treaties, protect the water, and defend the climate. Learn more and consider attending as part of our multifaith delegation.
MNIPL’s Community Connector webinars are for everyone! Each month, we deepen into a different topic related to climate justice. Through shared learning and conversation, we hope you can feel more confident and empowered to help grow the climate movement. Whether it’s with a community of faith or spiritual practice, neighborhood group, circle of friends, etc., we are all community connectors!
