Sustainable Organising - Part 1
The role of human organizing on the land and what we can learn from Indigenous Food Systems
In this lecture, Lyla will speak about her research on Native American food and land management techniques and strategies and what kind of organizing activities she sees that are needed to get humanity to move in a direction towards personal and collective ecological healing.
Dr. Lyla June Johnston (aka Lyla June) is an Indigenous musician, author, and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne) and European lineages. Her multi-genre presentation style has engaged audiences across the globe towards personal, collective, and ecological healing. She blends her study of Human Ecology at Stanford, graduate work in Indigenous Pedagogy, and the traditional worldview she grew up with to inform her music, perspectives and solutions. Her doctoral research focused on the ways in which pre-colonial Indigenous Nations shaped large regions of Turtle Island (aka the Americas) to produce abundant food systems for humans and non-humans.
The guest lectures are held with support from Näringslivets foundation.
