Clayton is involved in many initiatives to support the building of an inclusive global movement for energy and climate justice

The Bonita Chola, Angela Camacho: Angela is an Indigenous decedent, creative, Bruja, community organiser and ancestor in the making, whose work is rooted in the need to take back a sense of space and a place of origin, moving away from colonialism

Rachel Edwardson: Rachel is an Iñupiaq/Norwegian/Sami social justice filmmaker and educator from Utqiagvik (Barrow), Alaska.

Samara Almonte: Samara is part of the Michoacan diaspora, raised between the lakes and tierra caliente regions of Michoacan and occupied Coast Salish territory or the Pacific Northwest in so-called the United States. Samara identifies as a P’urhepecha descendant reconnecting with her ancestors, which has greatly influenced her work as storyteller and urban planner.

Topics will include:

  • What it means to be a good ancestor
  • How we make sure Indigenous voices are properly represented in climate conversations
  • How we preserve culture in a changing world
