Earth and Breath
Sarah Augustine, our Just Peace Climate Justice speaker, discusses the uses and failures of Capitalism and calls us to engage in an Indigenous cosmology that prioritizes Community Wellbeing over individuals and profit. She deftly contrasts a worldview that demands continued growth and increasing consumption against the basic reality that we exist in a closed system of mutual interdependence. Sarah speaks clearly about the ways we are willing to sacrifice human life, particularly Indigenous lives, in order to continue our extraction-based, consumerist lives without any real change.
