From the first contact with the European invaders Indigenous reproductive systems, matrilineal, and multi-gendered ways have been systematically attacked with attempts to dismantle our traditions through over 500 years of on-going genocide.
Our day-long institute covers topics such as the crisis of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirits, environmental justice, healthcare disparities, theft of our children, and what decolonization and tribal sovereignty look like.
