Tuesday, July 7: The Resilience of ‪#SacredPlaces‬: Protecting ‪#Biodiversity‬

Presented in partnership by the Sacred Land Film Project​ (an Earth Island Institute​ project) and The David Brower Center​.

Tuesday, July 7 at the David Brower Center in #Berkeley
6:30 pm - Doors open
7:00 pm - Program
8:30 pm - Community Reception in the Brower Center lobby
$10 Advance | $12 Door | $5 Students & Teachers
$15 Two-Day Ticket

Purchase Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-resilience-of-sacred-places-protecting-biodiversity-tickets-17179425123

The Brower Center and Sacred Land Film Project will host a powerful two-part program on Tues 7.7 & Wed. 7.8 exploring local ‪#indigenous‬ perspectives on ‪#environmental‬ and social resilience.

The first evening, Tues. 7.7 @ 7pm, focuses on the critical role sacred places play in supporting #biodiversity: according to the World Bank, indigenous peoples make up just 4 percent of the planet's population, yet their lands contain 80 percent of the ‪#Earth‬'s species, making indigenous groups crucial allies in the fight to protect biodiversity.

Join us for an evening of conversation, ‪#film‬ shorts, and a post-program community reception highlighting efforts to restore native cultural and biological heritage.

Ann Marie Sayers (Mutsun ‪#Ohlone‬), founder of Indian Canyon​ and Director of Costanoan Indian Research​, Corrina Gould (Chochenyo Ohlone), co-organizer for ‪#Indian‬ People Organizing for Change and Pennie Opal Plant (‪#Yaqui‬, ‪#Choctaw‬ and ‪#Cherokee‬), one of the founders of the Idle No More SF Bay​Area Chapter and the Refinery Corridor Healing Walks​ will share their work from the front lines. Earth Island Institute​'s SLFP project director Toby McLeod will host the evening.
