Stolen Waters Summit
From the flooding of Celilo Falls to the damming of Mni Sose (the Missouri River), Indigenous relationships to water have been impacted by colonial development projects for centuries. The Stolen Waters Summit will gather leading voices of Indigenous resistance and resurgence in the Missouri, Columbia, Colorado, and Rio Grande river basins. Talks and panels will feature scholars, attorneys, activists, writers, and artists as well as graduate students from the Blackfeet Nation, Navajo Nation, Shoshone-Bannock Tribe, and Pueblo tribes. The conference will also hail a resurgence of traditional cooking, food, and farming techniques and celebrate the poetry and music flowering in the cracks of colonial infrastructures.
Event locations will vary. A full program will be released on the conference website in September.
