Indigenous people have always been at the frontlines of movements for social and environmental justice, and yet, too often we see the whitewashing of climate justice organizing involving lack of respect for Indigenous people and their resistance and fight for the climate and for their self-determination. White fragility, settler identity and the myth of multiculturalism are intimately connected to climate injustice. Fighting for Indigenous self-determination and sovereignty is climate justice. This session seeks to open a space for a deep discussion about decolonizing climate justice organizing, and why decolonization must be at the forefront of movements for social and environmental justice.
