Interested in learning more about ecocide, the colonial ideologies behind it, and the impacts on Indigenous Peoples? Join us on Tuesday, March 9 at 3:00PM EST for a free webinar presented by Professor Deborah McGregor, Associate Professor, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University; Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Environmental Justice.

Webinar Details: 

This presentation will explore how the dualistic and racist Western-colonial conceptions of "human" and "nature" have harmed Indigenous communities in three related ways: by delegitimizing Indigenous environmental ontologies, identity, and ethics, by dehumanizing Indigenous peoples, and by enabling the ecocide-genocide of Indigenous lands and peoples. The presentation will also consider the value and limitations for Indigenous peoples of making ecocide an international crime.
