It has been a long road . . . and it still is not over. Across society, the “road” to building lasting partnerships and collaborations to create a better world have been decades in the making, but have accelerated in the last few years. This has been due to the Social Justice Movement, Climate Calamity and the Pandemic aftermath. It has intensely impacted the Indigenous Communities, who hold ancient and effective knowledge of how to interact with the world that gave them the gift of life and homeland. We will discuss and explore how these new interactions came to be and where these newborn bonds will take us as we continue to protect “cultural resources” and heal the Earth, as our original instructions directed us to all do.
