Indigenous communities have been fighting for change and justice across many social, economic, and environmental inequities for decades. This webinar will feature Indigenous leaders from across the country who are centering re-Indigenization, a process intended to promote community healing that centers the distinct social and cultural experiences of American Indian people.
