Event description (from the facebook event page)

Presented by the Lakota Strong Heart Warrior Society and
Philadelphia Be the Change Circle of the Pachamama Alliance

As inspiring as the NoDAPL protests at Standing Rock have been to many, a more aware understanding of Indigenous independence and decolonization is being requested by front-line warriors and groups. Growing this awareness enables allies and activists to provide solidarity that honors the critical relationship between defending Grandmother Earth *and* prioritizing the need to support the grassroots Indigenous people who preserve language and culture necessary for authentic Indigenous independence to renew itself.

Join us Wednesday April 26th to explore real decolonization and Indigenous independence, as well as ways that activists and allies can support these vital movements for Indigenous nationhood beyond the U.S. tribal government system. We will start with a keen and clear analysis of colonization and decolonization, and then grow understanding of current Indigenous independence struggles. Along the way, we will look at unsettling white settler supremacy and how to honor our varied stories while creating relationships of integrity with this continent’s Indigenous peoples and life forms.

Ana Oian Amets (Aquitanian Iladurrak) is a member through customary kinship of the Lakota Strong Heart Warrior Society and the Independent Lakota Nation.
