Second Convening of the Four Winds 2023

April 22-23, the Indigenous Environmental Network sponsored Movement Rights Second Convening of the Four Winds in the heart of the Cherokee Reservation in Oklahoma.

For two days Indigenous Peoples from all directions across Turtle Island came together and discussed Indigenous resistance strategies, water protection, Rights of Nature, MMIW, Indigenous Just Transition, and participated in a non-violent direct action training. Special gratitude to JoKay Dowell, IEN communications support specialist and Cherokee/Quapaw leader for hosting relatives and organizing this intergenerational gathering.

Not all tribes and communities agree on the role of fossil fuels and heavy industry, but we can all come together to protect the water. In Oklahoma alone, there are thousands of miles of freshwater that run through the territories of 39 tribes and non-tribal communities on its way to neighboring states.
