An Indigenous Perspective on the Rights of Nature – 2021 Doug Walker Lecture

Event Date: 
October 7, 2021

Human wellbeing and the health of our environment are inseparable. Indigenous Peoples have long recognized that nature has inherent and inalienable rights and have actively integrated that philosophy into their stewardship. Understanding our symbiotic relationship with the environment can help inform inclusive, actionable steps towards health and healing.

Join us for the 2021 Doug Walker Lecture as we explore an Indigenous perspective on nature’s fundamental rights and the health and wellness of all. Brought to you by the University of Washington’s College of the Environment, this live discussion will be moderated by Sally Jewell, former Secretary of the Interior with our featured speaker Paulette Jordan, founder and chairwoman of Save the American Salmon and proud member of the Coeur d’Alene tribe.

When: Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
