Untangling Colonialism – Training on a Decolonizing Framework

  • Cold Climate Housing Research Center 955 Draanjik Drive Fairbanks, AK (map)

Untangling Colonialism – Decolonizing Advocacy. Decolonizing strategies require recognition of the history of colonization and its current manifestations. This training briefly covers United States Federal Indian Policy carried out dominantly in the lower 48 and its expansion into Alaska policy and the implications on Alaska Native peoples. Additionally, participants will discuss how the history of environmental conservation has mirrored colonial constructs and strategies in which we can begin to decolonize conservation. This training delves into the spectrum of decolonizing strategies; from various personal, institutional, and systemic pathways forward. 

Trainers: Princess Daazhrai Johnson, Enei Begaye Peter, Jessica Girard, and Shawna Larson

These training sessions are open to community advocates and our allies in community building and environmental stewardship. RSVP for trainings here.
