PME Save the Date - August 1-4, 2024

IEN’s Protecting Mother Earth conference, after five years of dormancy presents:

The 2024 18th  Protecting Mother Earth (PME) Conference will take place August 1-4, 2024, in Cherokee, North Carolina, to be hosted by the Eastern Cherokee Organization, led by Eastern Band Cherokee matriarchs Mary Crowe and Lisa Montelongo and welcomed by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

We expect as many as 1,500 participants to come from many diverse Indigenous nations, societies, groups and organizations from across the world, with most coming from Turtle Island and the Western Hemisphere. The PME has shown the ability to educate, train, and develop much needed dialogue and strategy around environmental justice issues affecting Indigenous Peoples and our lands, territories, air, and waters. Held in regional locations on Indigenous territories throughout Turtle Island, the PME has become a vast coalition-building success connecting Indigenous communities throughout the Americas and indeed, the world.

Mark your calendars 🗓️ More information will be released soon!
