2022 Changemaker Fellowship Showcase
Changemaker Showcase: Opening Conversation
The NDN Changemaker Showcase brings together 14 Indigenous leaders from throughout Turtle Island and beyond who are radically transforming Indigenous communities by defending Indigenous lands and rights, developing sustainable solutions for the future, and decolonizing their day-to-day lives, their families, communities and Nations. Join us in this opening conversation with insightful discussions on the origins of the NDN Changemaker Fellowship, featuring words by Nick Tilsen, NDN Collective President and CEO, and Gaby Strong, NDN Foundation Managing Director. And don’t miss a special musical performance by Lyla June.
Changemaker Showcase: DECOLONIZE – Part 1
Indigenous People’s understand that decolonization, or Indigenizing our communities and people is directly related to our ability to prosper. We are kicking off the 2022 NDN Changemaker Virtual Showcase with POWERFUL discussions around the meaning of Decolonizing and the BOLD VISIONS that our Changemaker Fellows hold for the world! This first panel features conversation with Elena Terry, Halay Turning Heart, Dustin J. Whitford. Moderated by Sarah Sunshine Manning, with another musical performance by Lyla June
Changemaker Showcase: DECOLONIZE – Part 2
As Indigenous Peoples continue to revitalize ceremonies, culture, languages, and ways of life we will continue to strengthen our identities and break free from the oppressive systems that disconnect us from achieving the healing, growth, and connection to spirit that is integral for us as Indigenous Peoples. We continue the discussion of decolonizing in panel two, featuring conversations with Roberto Múkaro Borrero, Naasalthuk Rampanen and Marjorie Kunaq Tahbone. Moderated by PennElys Droz. Musical performance by Mic Jordan.
Changemaker Showcase: DEVELOP – Part 1
