BIPOC Gathering: Environmental Justice in Imníżaska: a presentation and discussion with Keeli Siyaka of Lower Phalen Creek Project
Join us for our next BIPOC Gathering!
We will be hosting a presentation and conversation with Keeli Siyaka of the Lower Phalen Creek Project, an Indigenous-run environmental justice group that has been working in East Side St. Paul since 1997. Their work involves re-wilding land destroyed by industrialization and settler colonialism as well as educating the greater community on the land we inhabit, its significance, and its history.
Keeli will discuss how she uses an Indigenous perspective in her environmental justice/education work and ways to maintain relationships with the land, even after it has been changed.
