Program Title: There is no climate justice without Indigenous governance
Description: This week on the show, Breanne Lavallée-Heckert, the research manager at Indigenous Climate Action, talks about the importance of Indigenous stewardship in regard to the climate crisis and how people can support Indigenous Climate Action.
Founded in 2015, Indigenous Climate Action is an Indigenous-led organization guided by a diverse group of Indigenous knowledge keepers, water protectors and land defenders from communities and regions across Turtle Island. The vision of the organization is “a world with sovereign and thriving Indigenous Peoples and cultures leading climate justice for all.”
Indigenous Climate Action inspires action through the development of tools and opportunities created with, by and for Indigenous communities, with the goal of uplifting Indigenous voices, sovereignty, and stewardship of the lands and waters for future generations.
Today, Breanne Lavallée-Heckert joins rabble audience editor Jillian Piper to talk about the idea of joy for Indigenous youth as an act of rebellion, defunding the police, and why climate solutions cannot happen without Indigenous governance.
This podcast is part of rabble’s series “The Boiling Point.” The Boiling Point examines the ways increasingly high temperatures due to the climate crisis are affecting our summers in Canada on a social, institutional, and ecological level. The series also explains how Canadians can take action against climate change and make real differences in their communities. Follow more stories here.
