Circle of Life | Bioneers

Indigenous women hold the knowledge and ability to nurture life, and in many communities they are also the first line responders to environmental and social threats to community wellbeing. This panel will explore: the roles Indigenous women play in supporting and upholding life from birth to death (and beyond); the resurgence of Indigenous midwifery; women’s coming of age ceremonies; and how to make conscious choices to treat food as medicine and our bodies as sacred.

Featuring: Cara Romero, Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy, Danielle Hill, and Sage LaPena

This presentation took place in the Indigeneity Forum at the 2019 National Bioneers Conference.

Indigeneity is a Native-led Program within Bioneers/Collective Heritage Institute that promotes indigenous knowledge and approaches to solve the earth’s most pressing environmental and social issues through respectful dialogue.
