The 2022 Indigenous Peoples Summit
On August 9, 2022, Comunidad Maya Pixan Ixim co-hosted the 2022 Indigenous Peoples Summit, a multilateral, dynamic, interdisciplinary gathering of Indigenous and nonindigenous people from all walks of life to discuss Native Nation Sovereignty and Environmental Justice.
The event was generously sponsored by Oatly and The Nature Conservancy.
While many symposia, summits, conferences and gatherings take place on this day, few others draw from such a professionally, geographically, demographically diverse array of speakers, panelists, and guests.
We gathered in the land currently known as Nebraska to hear from thinkers in the areas of Tribal / Indigenous Leadership, agriculture, academia, medicine, philanthropy, government, and industry to imagine how Indigenous People can serve as partners and leaders in the coming years as we work as a global community to address environmental justice.
While more than 200 people attended this event in person and countless others online via livestream generously facilitated by Metropolitan Community College, we know that many, many more want to see and hear and read about what took place at this event.
In the links and galleries on this page, you may read and view the thoughts and ideas covered during this day of ideation, inspiration, emotion, collaboration, truth telling, and hope.
If you attended any portion of this event or supported it in any way, THANK YOU!
