Indigenous people and the special places they hold sacred have come under threat and destruction from global resource extraction industries in a “Green New Deal” response to climate change. With the conflict at the Apaches’ sacred Chi’chil Bildagoteel (“Oak Flat”) caused by mining giants Rio Tinto and BHP’s proposed copper mine there, the panelists will explain how universal moral and ethical tenets and traditional Indigenous ecological and cultural knowledge should guide people, governments, and corporation boards in developing honest socially responsible solutions to the challenges of the climate change problem.
