Pueblo Action Alliance had the opportunity to present a workshop at this years Culture Shift Conference. We were able to speak on how in which we organize as well as WHY we organize, most of all how we incorporate our traditional and cultural values.
How can traditional knowledge be integrated into organizing spaces? Join the Pueblo Action Alliance—a community driven organization that promotes cultural sustainability by addressing environmental issues on ancestral lands—for an interactive discussion on Pueblo-centric organizing. We will share about how we integrate our dance, song, prayer, and teachings about the interconnection of land, water, and people into our organizing spaces and strategies. We will discuss how we weave direct, civic, and ceremonial action to both empower pueblo communities in the environmental justice movement and to help heal from historical and genetic trauma. And we will invite all participants to explore their own cultural roots as a source of sustenance and resilience.
