Watch her full talk here.

Legendary Mohawk midwife and environmental health researcher and advocate Katsi Cook illuminates her dynamic new work strengthening Indigenous communities and addressing the cultural and physical safety and thriving lives of Indigenous girls and women. As Program Director of NoVo Foundation’s Indigenous Communities Leadership Program for Indigenous Girls and Women, she’s building bridges across communities and existing networks to increase synergy in the protection of Indigenous girls and women from multiple forms of violence and oppression. She shares preliminary results from a network-mapping analysis using a net-centered approach based on the understanding that “leadership is an emergent property of a network in balance”.

This speech was given at the 2016 National Bioneers Conference.
